On February 27, 2013 Sally Ashton spoke in the University Scholar Series hosted by Provost Ellen Junn at the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Library. Sally Ashton is currently the Santa Clara County Poet Laureate, lecturer in the English and Creative Writing Departments at SJSU, and Editor-in-Chief of DMQ Review, an online journal featuring poetry and art. As Poet Laureate, and as a poet and teacher, she has spent the past several years familiarizing people with poetry and making a case for its place in their lives. Ashton talks about these experiences and discuss "how a poem means," her own writing, and how someone might come to enjoy contemporary poetry.
