Past Event

Invited Guest Poetry Reading

National prize-winning poets Kimberly Johnson and Jay Hopler will read and discuss their work as part of an “Invited Guest Poetry Reading” event. Also, original poems, previously submitted and juried, will be read by their authors.

Annually, Kankakee Community College (KCC) invites guest poets to read their original poems to a public audience, and this year’s invited participants will be part of the program with Johnson and Hopler.

To be considered for public reading and for more information, send an email to Identify the subject line as “Guest Poet Question.”
