For the Love of Writing (F.L.O.W) is an organization where students who enjoy writing, reading or listening to poetry can get together and introduce their writing pieces. Students create poems or any other form of writing that conveys a story, whether it comes from personal experience, helping others or creativity.

Kenneth Bui, a philosophy major, shared several pieces at a recent F.L.O.W. gathering. One piece was about helping those at risk for suicide by advocating for their emotional support and mental health.

Bui said he writes for those who need to hear messages of hope, considering his interest in studying philosophy and religion.

He describes his work as “exploring aspects within yourself,” and said his writing style is haiku-inspired.

“One-line poems say so much,” Bui said.

As a recent member, Bui described F.L.O.W. gatherings as a place where one can express how they feel through verse.

“There are different styles of poetry, and mostly everyone who wants to join feels intimidated, but will have something to say at the end of the meeting,” Bui said.

For members F.L.O.W is a form of taking a break from school life and exploring styles of poetry through others, or within ourselves, even if we think we aren’t skilled in poetry.

Students are encouraged to join F.L.O.W gatherings, whether they enjoy writing or just want to listen.
