Watch a three-minute interview with Virginia Morford '21 talking about her winning poem and reading it aloud.
A poem that Virginia Morford ’21 originally wrote as a journal entry while quarantined at home last spring won this year’s high school poetry contest. Each year, a notable poet is asked to address students at a high school Poetry Festival and choose two winning entries. This year the judge was Julie Bruck, an esteemed and widely published San Francisco poet.
