Original poetry by rising senior Menna Delva was selected for inclusion in the 2021 Storm King Spring Arts Festival. Her work, titled "Her Lullaby," is included in the festival's virtual program, in which the poem was read aloud. It was also published in the Festival Anthology.
Poet and author Joanna Solfrian was one of the judges in this fifth annual poetry festival. She said of Delva’s poem: “[It] packs in a lot of movement, from lush description to self-interruptive wordplay; at the end, it jumps fro high to low diction, which surprises the reader — oh no! she hasn’t read it! — and we are left with an overwhelming feeling of comic sympathy.”
