On Thursday, April 16, a release party was held to celebrate the publication of the Spring 2015 issue of Groundswell, the University of Bridgeport’s Magazine of Literature and the Arts. Several students and faculty gathered to share their love for poetry and receive a free copy of the magazine. The evening was full of passionately-recited poems, rich conversations, and free expression of the mind. Most of the poems performed were original and offered a wide range of themes and thoughts, a representation of the diversity we have here at UB. Free poems and refreshments were provided, creating a warm and comfortable atmosphere throughout the evening.
