Up next on Worlds Awaiting, local poet, Gina Clark, talks with Rachel about the joys of digging deeper into a poem – going below the surface, and discovering greater riches in the process. She also suggests reading poetry as a family – even adding a poem to the bedtime routine. Gina Clark is a Utah native and mother of six children. She completed a Master of Fine Arts degree in poetry at Arizona State University and has taught as an adjunct at Brigham Young University and Utah Valley University. She is currently a writing instructor with BYU's Independent Study. Gina is an avid supporter of her local public library in Orem, Utah, where she has been a volunteer storyteller for over a decade. Her monthly "Storytime" presentations might better be called "PoetryTime," since she fills them with poems for readers – young and old alike.
