Award-winning poet at Kinston school for second residency

KINSTON, N.C. (WNCT) – An award-winning poet has returned to Rochelle Middle School.

Glenis Redmond is there for her second residency. As part of the residency, she works with students and teachers on writing and creative expression.

“I’m not trying to make everyone a poet,” Redmond said. “I just want them to find the poet within them, the poetry within their lives because no matter what you do in life, you’re going to need communication.”

The residency, which is funded by a grant from the NC Arts Council to the Kinston Arts Council, runs through Thursday.

She’s expected to return in the near future for a public celebration of the program.
