Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Gregory Pardlo, at left, was on campus last weekend working with students from Associate Professor Vievee Francis’ advanced creative writing class, including Emma Sklarin ’18, center, and Hannah Matheson ’18, who shared their work with Pardlo at Umpleby’s Café. Francis says the visit was one of many opportunities “English 86” students have “to meet with and enjoy writers at the top of their game.” (Photo by Vievee Francis)
