PRINCE GEORGE- The third annual poetry walk kicked off the work week earlier this morning at the Prince George Public Library. The walk promotes poetry and creativity while giving people the opportunity to explore downtown in a new and engaging way.

This year saw UNBC creative writing students taking the walk through the downtown, visiting various historic landmarks in the downtown core. They were asked by their professor to write a poem based on the locations they were visiting and read them to the group, or have someone else read the poem if they were too nervous.

Professor Robert Budde thought his students could benefit from experiencing the local history and give them a new outlook on what writing can be.
