Welcome to Tahoma West and UWT’s “People’s Poem” Project

Welcome to Tahoma West and UWT’s “People’s Poem” Project. 

If you’ve made it this far, you must be interested, or at least curious, about contributing to this project.  Of course, we hope you do!

So now that you’re here, here’s what you can do…

The first line of the collaborative poem started by Kwame Dawes is below.  Read it, think about it, and write a second line to go with it—however you read “it.”  Then paste your second line in the “comments” box below and upload it to the board.  That’s it!  Hopefully the board below will grow and grow to represent the many different voices that make up our great UWT community.  You are, of course, free to submit more than once if you have different ideas.  We just ask that they be separate posts, since this is a collaborative project, we’re not looking for longer, fully fleshed out poems (though by all means write them for yourself if the inspiration moves you).

 Before you submit your “second” line, the only things we ask are that you:

  •  Write it in good faith and in the desire to contribute to the artistic and civic minded goals of the project
  • Sign it and make sure your name is included (Be proud!)
  •  Really, Really, only submit one line at a time to continue from the original first line (but again, feel free to post more than one “second” line if you want)

The Tahoma West board will be open for live posts (or even just reading) through the end of the day on Monday, and at the conclusion of the project, Janie Miller, our poetry professor, will review the posts and edit the submissions down to form a single, UWT collaborative poem that will be shared with the campus community next week and also be published in the 2013 issue of Tahoma West.

Now go for it!

Here’s the first line:

Say “nation”. In the wake of quarrels, say “hope”.
