Montessori Poetry Project

Writers, we need you!

You have already received (probably) an e-mail about this, so this is a second call for volunteers.

Please consider joining us for a short afternoon on April 29, about 2-4 p.m.

We will be working with fifth graders at the Montessori Public School, helping them write poems and prepare their work for their very own publication.

This year will be our fifth collaboration with this school, and it always turn out to be a great experience. It's a simple volunteer opportunity for us (how many volunteer opportunities involve poetry??), but it has such a nice result for these young people.

If you are interested, please contact Prof. Rienstra at Thanks!

CCL Contest Ready to Roll

Forget the basketball rivalries. Let's beat the other Christian colleges at WRITING! Here's our chance to show the mighty power of Calvin writers. It's time to enter the Conference on Christianity and Literature writing contest. Deadline is May 13. Categories are poetry, creative nonfiction, fiction, and academic essay. Look around the English department for posters to get all the details or check out the rules here. Prizes are modest but very nice. Mostly this is about honor and glory. To God. Of course.
