Take Something Ordinary, and Make it Extraordinary!

St. Benedict student Gabriell Beland discusses poetry with Dr. Nash following his workshop.

April 28, 2011 - St. Benedict students’ attention was captured by Greater City of Sudbury’s Poet Laureate, Dr. Roger Nash, during his poetry workshop with senior English classes. He told them they can write about anything, and by doing so, keep a special memory alive. Dr. Nash demonstrated this fact by reading his poems about the family cat Genghis, and another about his childhood memory of his grandmother’s passion for playing piano; so vigorously it seemed to take flight. Roger Nash intrigued students with his explanations for the impetus behind his poems, which in turn inspired students to write their own poetry. His final advice was that through poetry one can, “take something ordinary, and make it extraordinary”.
