Gabby Palmer is taking a Creative Writing course at Lakeland this Semester. For their first assignment, they were asked to write fictional poetry, any style. Gabby wrote several free verse poems. Her professor was so impressed that he submitted the poems to the campus magazine and they were published in the Fall Edition of "The Lakelander". Attached are copies of her published poems.
The "Red Houses" poem is based on her experience with a play she did at FHS many years ago, called "SISU is in the Heart" with Park Cofield about his family from Finland. The story and the people she met through that process had a huge impact on her.
Her poem, "Humiliation", speaks for itself.
