After her stirring inaugural poem, the president of Morgan State University wants to give Amanda Gorman a job. President David Wilson was amazed by Gorman’s “The Hill We Climb,” so amazed that he wants to offer Gorman a Poet-In-Residence position at the HBCU. Gorman’s career is already taking off after her poem yesterday. Penguin Young Readers will publish a special edition of her inaugural poem this spring.
As for the job offer, Gorman’s team hasn’t responded, but I’m sure this won’t be her only job offer.
What was your most memorable inauguration moment?
