Poetic Combustion! Gordon College Chemistry and English Departments Collaborate on Unique Celebration of Words

“Of Poetry and Periodic Tables: A Celebration of Words and Letters”—an open mic public reading--will take place on Tuesday, October 20, the official National Day of Writing sponsored by the National Council for Teachers of English. Gordon's Chemistry Department is also sponsoring its first-ever essay contest using only symbols from the periodic table to coincide with the theme for this year’s National Chemistry Week (October 19–23), which focuses on the 140th anniversary of Mendeleev’s Periodic Table.
Students and faculty from both the Chemistry and English Departments will read their original essays and poems during the café-style salon, which will be held in the second floor student lounge of the Ken Olsen Science Center from 4:30–6 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. Read more...
