Historical Context:
Grand Valley State University’s Poetry Night has a two-decade-long tradition of bringing acclaimed poets to West Michigan to share their work with the GVSU community. During the evening event, GVSU students are awarded prizes for their poetry. In 2021, Julia Raye Osterhouse won the GVSU Poetry Prize for their poem “Naked.” The design and illustration of the broadside is by GVSU Associate Professor W. Todd Kaneko who is also an author and poet.
