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.
Email email@example.com to be sent a flyer with complete guidelines.
