GGC student Abby Vaughn readsMad Girl’s Love Song” by Sylvia Plath during the Nov. 3, VoxArtis event, Get in the Mood: Dark Poetry for a Dark Season. Vaughn, also the Prose Editor for VoxArtis, questioned audience members about the poem and facilitated analysis and discussion following her reading.

Brandon Hopkins, GGC student and VoxArtis Poetry Editor, also read during the event. Hopkins posed poignant questions about Robert Browning’s “Porphyria’s Lover” and encouraged a rich discussion from GGC students.

Further darkening the mood, Peter Klinect’s portrayal of Edgar Allan Poe’s, “The Raven” ended the event with a chilling “nevermore.”

Submission deadline for the literary and visual arts magazine, VoxArtis, is Nov. 21, 2011.
