Colleen Michaels finalist in Split This Rock Poetry Contest

February 24, 2010

Liberal Arts faculty member Colleen Michaels was recently named a finalist in the 2010 Split This Rock Poetry Contest for her poem, “Something Fragile.”

“Split This Rock Poetry Festival invites poets, writers, artists, activists, dreamers, and all concerned world citizens to Washington, DC, for poetry, community building, and creative transformation as our country continues to grapple with two wars, a crippling economic crisis, and other social and environmental ills.

From March 10 through March 13, 2010, the festival will feature readings, workshops, panel discussions, youth programming, film, activism — opportunities to speak out for social justice, imagine a way forward, and celebrate the many ways that poetry can act as an agent for social change.”
