The event will recognize the works of awardees and participants in the Division’s annual poetry contest held earlier in the spring semester.

Prizes of $50, $30, and $20 dollars will be awarded to the top entries in both categories.

Guest poets, Sara Hughes and Martin Lammon will present original works first, to be followed by the contest winners.

Hughes, whose first book The Disappearing Act won the 2016 Adrienne Bond Award for poetry, has published in many respected literary journals, and teaches literature and writing at Middle Georgia State University. Lammon the author of a poetry collection entitled, News from Where I Live, had three of his poems, published in Nimrod, selected by poet W.S. Merwin for a Pablo Neruda Prize and currently holds the Fuller E. Callaway endowed Flannery O’Conner Chair in Creative Writing at Georgia College in Milledgeville.
