I’m very happy to add a second student anthology as a product of my involvement with Dr. Jason Boyd’s “Narrative in a Digital Age” class. Included in the anthology are the students’ poems plus their lovely and interesting responses to the projects.

On September 18th, 2015, two time U.S. Women’s Chess Champion Jennifer Shahade played a blindfold chess exhibition at Ryerson University’s Student Learning Center against Aaron Tucker; both of their moves were translated in poems in real time. You can find a full recap by Joshua Arthur Peter White-Crummey at the Ryersonian, complete with additional pictures plus video (included below here) of the event and interviews with the participants at http://www.ryersonian.ca/blindfolded-chess-match-transformed-into-digital-poetry-at-slc/.
