THE POETRY OUTREACH CENTER
The primary purpose of the Poetry Outreach Center is to encourage poetic activity—-the creation and appreciation of poetry—-at all levels of public education. Poets from City College’s faculty and graduate student body give readings and conduct hands-on writing workshops in NYC public schools, which culminate in students’ participation at the Annual Spring Poetry Festival.

THE MFA READING SERIES
Organized and curated by MFA in Creative Writing students, this reading series provides opportunities for graduate student writers to read their work alongside alumni and a headlining professor. The goals of the series are to allow graduate writers to share their work and develop skills as public readers, to promote community enthusiasm, to create connections with program alumni, and to highlight the work of CCNY graduate English students, faculty, and alumni in the wider NY literary scene. Readings occur on Fridays once a month. Contact: Series Organizers, CCityLit@gmail.com
