LBCC Valley Writers Series Hosts Student Poets Laureate

Student Poets Laureate Ruth Krueger and Amy Earls will hold a poetry reading as part of the Valley Writers Series Wednesday, Feb. 12 at 7:30 p.m. at LBCC’s Benton Center, room BC-244, 757 NW Polk Ave., Corvallis.

Earls became the second LBCC Student Poet Laureate in 2009-2010.  A writer and part-time English and education graduate student at Western Oregon University, Earls also instructs an online vocabulary course at LBCC’s Benton Center and is currently writing her memoir.

Krueger’s love for words came to life when she started taking classes at LBCC in 2009.  She began writing poetry, enjoying the variety of expression that can go into a poem.

Krueger was an active member of the LBCC Poetry Club and, following in the footsteps of her daughter Amy, served as the fourth LBCC Student Poet Laureate in 2011-2012.  Krueger is pursuing a degree in elementary education and in liberal studies at Oregon State University.

The LBCC Valley Writers Series is free and open to the public and is sponsored by the LBCC English Department. The series exists to connect beginning writers with professional writers and to stimulate creative writing among area students, to enhance literary awareness in our community and to encourage Oregon writers.
