The English Department in collaboration with The Wittenberg Poetry Society, Sigma Tau Delta, and The Writing Center, is asking all members of the Wittenberg community to share some lines (a single line or two) of poetry that are vital to you. We will seal these individual lines into a collection of vintage matchbooks, and drop them into a fishbowl in the Writing Center. Anyone and everyone is invited to draw a matchbook from the fishbowl and write an original poem using the borrowed line sealed into the matchbook.
The project is open to everyone, and will culminate in a poetry reading in Ness Auditorium on Thursday, April 16that 4:15pm, where participants are invited to read their poem and the original poem whose first line they were inspired by.
