Gentle’s work centers poetry to revolutionize concepts surrounding race, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, class, ability, citizenship, universal forces, and more. At New York University, I have completed my minor in Creative Writing with a concentration in Poetry! 1/2 of my minor I completed through the unique Undergraduate Intensive Seminars in Poetry- taught by acclaimed poets Terrance Hayes and Matthew Rohrer—open to select NYU undergraduates. It has been a dream come true to spend my course of study in the Master Class programming.
