Guest post from University of Richmond student Kat Mitchell, who has spent this semester with Partners in the Arts (PIA) through an independent study and internship. She caught up with teaching artist Roscoe Burnems in March.
In early 2021, Roscoe Burnems was announced as Richmond’s first-ever poet laureate. Roscoe has been an integral part of Partners in the Arts for many years, contributing his expertise, talent, and passions for spoken word poetry and student-centered education. His involvement with Partners in the Arts has been an impactful and exciting collaboration!
