Yael Glouberman ’12: Spotlight Poet

Leigh Jacobson

Spotlight Editor

On Wednesday, December 15, Yael Glouberman ’12 presented her work at the lunch Writes of Passage meeting as the month’s Spotlight Poet.

She was selected for this honor as a result of her presentation of a short story in her Study of Fiction Honors class.

“The overall positive response made me confident enough to submit my short story,” says Glouberman.

The work she presented, titled “Progress”, was a short science fiction story, which is her favorite type of story to write. It was originally a homework assignment for her class, which she then expanded.

“I’ve always been interested in science fiction and writing and ironic plot twists, so I tried to incorporate all of that into my story,” says Glouberman.

The presentation was a success and made a lasting impact on the audience.

“Yael’s story demonstrated excellent writing skills and was a pleasure to listen to,” said Lucas Fisher ’11, Creative Writing leader. “The plot was gripping and suspenseful.”

Glouberman intends to write more in the future, and sees this presentation as the first step of her plan to continue to contribute more writing.
