The 2013 Pew Fellow poets—Emily Abendroth, Jenn McCreary, Sueyeun Juliette Lee, and Frank Sherlock—brought Philadelphia verse to the West Coast in early May, when they read at San Francisco State University’s Poetry Center. Their trip was made possible through Center support.
Curious about what they presented, we asked the poets to share samples of their work. Watch Frank Sherlock, the current poet laureate of Philadelphia, read his poem “Little Sensation.”
