Victoria Chan - Gilbert-Chappell Distinguished Poets Series

Western North Carolina poets participating in the Gilbert-Chappell Distinguished Poet Series (GCDPS) will be reading their work at Fontana Regional libraries in April. Participating poets include Pat Riviere-Seel, the region’s Distinguished Poet (DP) and three student poets, Morgan Guynn, Victoria Tran, and Donna Glee Williams. 
The GCDPS series, a free program of the North Carolina Poetry Society and the North Carolina Center for the Book, pairs an established North Carolina poet with four newer writers who wish to develop their work. From December through April, the students and the DP correspond or meet to discuss and work on about a dozen of each student’s poems. The series includes a GCDPS reading at Western Carolina’s annual Literary Festival in April and individual readings with the DP at the students’ home libraries.
