National Poetry Month

MCC Poetry/Video Project 2003: "Words Work..."

"A good poem is a bit like a volcanic island. It creates new terrain of the soul."
-Jane Hirshfield

What can you and your department do to celebrate National Poetry Month in April, 2003? Patrick Callan, Kathy O'Shea and Ann Tippett, co-chairs of MCC's 5th annual celebration of National Poetry Month, want your help in collaborating with ETS to produce "Words Work…" a third MCC poetry collection celebrating the many roles and benefits of poetry. This effort will capture on videotape the readings of College members' selected poems and brief comments on their importance to the readers.

These readings and commentaries will culminate in a unified celebration of the art and vision of the MCC community—through a videotape produced by our Instructional Technologies Department. We are challenging all MCC departments to solicit volunteers for this video, which will ultimately be shared with the College community, as well as with many others through the MCC web site. We will, of course, be seeking student involvement, as well.

Please read the attached form, and join us in the celebration!
