This week, we're introducing our second guest blogger of the Fall: Eleanor Allen-Henderson. Eleanor was a volunteer this past summer at the Poetry Center's annual Creative Writing Camp. She has graciously agreed to share her writing with us. Below is one of her poems. Keep an eye out for more writing from Eleanor in the next few months!
The Weeping Angels surrounded the Doctor and his companion, all angles in a building made of glass. How he landed in this god-forsaken place, he did not know...but couches...couches! Suddenly, he possessed thoughts no longer, only thoughts, ideas, tangents. Couches, couches, leather from dead animals dyed red and black. Couches...couches...the angels advanced. Show time.
Eleanor Allen-Henderson is fourteen years old and is a sophomore at University High School. She hopes to share her passion for good literature adn beautiful moments. She likes hiking, summer nights, and Latin conjugations. She dislikes oppression. She's been honored with a Young Authors award in 2005 for a short story. With this honor, she attended the Young Authors Conference at the Jewish Community Center and met the guest poet Gary Soto.
