I am a student in the Modern American Poetry class at Episcopal High School in Alexandria, Virginia. My class worked on these books with visiting artist Wendy Wolf. Modern American Poetry is co-taught by Molly W. Pugh and Elizabeth Vorlicek and combines the study of poetry, from the Modernist era, with the studio practice of making artist’s books.
