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.
