Photo Brief: Literary Lollapalooza

Senior Creative Writing and Film Major Luke Beekman (Left) reads a poem for Mangrove’s Alliterative: A Literary Lallapalooza on the rocks. Mangrove is Miami’s literary journal, and publishes the literary and artistic works from undergraduate students and recent alumni. The Editor and Chief of Mangrove, Senior Creative Writing and Anthropology Major, Zach Miller (Right) and the Assistant Editor, Sophomore Creative Writing and Philosophy Major, Danny Elfanbaum (Left), assist Beekman in his performance by playing wooden frog instruments that make croaking noises. “I wrote it awhile ago in middle school,” said Beekman, “I’m still impressed by my abilities when I was younger to rhyme.” Beekman restated his favorite lines from the poem, “With his feet on the ground and his eyes on the clouds, Harold smiled with delight. He had made himself proud. That was actually the most fun all day. He built it up as a silly little thing, but I was impressed with it,” said Miller. “This year, more than others, we are making a lot of progress. I’m glad to see people recognizing our organization.” The officers of Mangrove sold raffle tickets and candy to raise money for the organization and hosted a flash fiction/poetry contest as well as readings by writers published in the magazine and by students during the open-microphone sessions. “I love working with Mangrove. It’s really nice to see what my peers are doing across campus,” said Elfenbaum.
