The program’s introduction explains the purpose behind the Jam’s creation. “We all have something to say. The Whaling City 2021 Poetry Jam is a project meant to unite us as students and bring us together, saying all those things we have to say. At the beginning, we chose a central theme – Growth – around which to build our words. We have collected a wide variety of works that all tie back into this theme, all from the great minds of our students. We hope you enjoy Voices of Whaling City as much as we enjoyed creating it and bringing these works to all of you.”
