AMAM Seeks Poems Inspired by Museum Art
The Allen Memorial Art Museum (AMAM) and the Creative Writing Program are asking students, faculty, staff, and members of the greater Oberlin community to submit poems written in response to, describing, or inspired by works of visual art currently on view in the museum. Select poems will be chosen by AMAM staff and creative writing faculty to be read by the poets at the AMAM’s First Thursday event on May 7.
Interested poets may submit up to two poems, with the total entry not exceeding six pages. Submissions should be sent in a Word document and should include the poet’s name, address, email, and phone number; the title of the museum work and the artist; and the title of the poem.
Submissions should be emailed to Jason Trimmer, Eric and Jane Nord Family Curator of Education, at firstname.lastname@example.org by 5 p.m. on Friday, April 17. For questions or more information, contact Trimmer.
