Poetry for the Earth - student contest

Members of the Poetry of Work Faculty Interest Group (F.I.G.) have decided to give their 2019 Title III grant to students. 

Four $200 prizes will be awarded for student poems that respond to themes connected to climate issues, environmental distress or wonderment, animals, lanscapes, etc. 

Please submit 1-2 poems to by April 15. 

Winners will be announced and poems will be read on Earth Day, Monday April 22, at 5:30 p.m. in Bailey 10, Gorham campus. 


Note:  This event precedes the Earth Day film screening of Painting the Modern Landscape: Monet to Matisse, starting at 6:30 p.m.  We hope you can join us for both events!
