Poets Series

2018 marked the 27th anniversary of the NCCC Poetry on the Edge reading series, devoted to bringing the best local and national poets to NCCC for readings, workshops, and classroom visits. Such luminaries as Jim Daniels, Wanda Coleman, Gerald Locklin, and Lyn Lifshin have appeared as part of the series, and we have gathered some video of recent readings here for your enjoyment and edification. Please watch for next semester’s schedule of poets!

The Poetry on the Edge series is sponsored by the English Department, the Division of Humanities and Social Sciences, and the NCCC Office of Student Life.
