The Matchbook Project and Poetry Reading
The English Department in collaboration with The Wittenberg Poetry Society, Sigma Tau Delta, and The Writing Center, is asking members of the Wittenberg community–faculty, staff, students, alums, and others – to share some lines (a single line or two) of poetry that are the vital to you. We will seal these individual lines into a collection of vintage matchbooks, drop them into a fishbowl in the Writing Center, invite anyone to draw a matchbook and write an original poem using the borrowed line tucked in the matchbook. The project is open to everyone, and will culminate in a poetry reading in Ness Auditorium on Thursday, April 11th at 4:15pm, where participants are invited to read their poem and the original poem whose first line they were inspired by.
Send us (today!) a line of a poetry you love or (just discovered) by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
