GVSU Arts Celebration Poetry Night

Danez Smith

Date and Time

Monday, March 14, 2022 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM




Join us for an evening with Danez Smith, Ericka “Kyd Kane” Thompson and Marcel “Fable the Poet” Price.


Grand Valley State University’s Poetry Night has a two-decades-long tradition of bringing acclaimed poets to West Michigan to share their work with the GVSU community. This year’s event pairs nationally celebrated and award-winning poet Danez Smith with two local poets: Ericka “Kyd Kane” Thompson, current Grand Rapids Poet Laureate; and Marcel “Fable” Price, the previous Grand Rapids Poet Laureate.  


All three of these writers are performers. Their bold, important work resonates both on the page and on the stage, and this evening promises to be an energetic, dynamic, challenging, moving, and unforgettable event.  


Date & Time 

Monday, March 14, 2022, 7 p.m. 

Virtual--registration on the GV Arts website will open soon.

This event also appears on the main events calendar tagged as poetry.
