Next on Worlds Awaiting, Rachel visits with local poet, Gina Clark about where her love of poetry started. Gina also offers tips on how to help our children and family engage in poetry. Clark is a Utah native and mother of six children ages 15 to five. 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.
