Poet Cornelius Eady

The annual Gabriel Zimpritch Poetry Symposium was held on April 29. Fourteen students gathered via Zoom for a poetry-writing workshop led by Cornelius Eady, distinguished poet, co-founder of Cave Canem, and professor in the MFA program at Stony Brook Southampton. The symposium concluded in the evening with a poetry reading and celebration, also via Zoom, which parents, friends, and community members were able to attend. We are grateful for the support of the Zimpritch family who fund the Symposium each year in memory of their son Gabe, a writer and lover of poetry.
