Unterberg Poetry Center

For our first issue, we are excited to publish works of fiction and poetry by students from the Unterberg Poetry Center's summer workshops taught by writers Meg Wolitzer, Rafi Zabor, Emily Fragos and Rachel Hadas.

Students' pieces were selected by the instructors for publication to showcase the creative work coming out of the Poetry Center's workshops. Every year, the Poetry Center brings in highly-acclaimed and established authors and poets to its podium, and now we would like to introduce and share the work of these emerging authors.
