Gordon Wins Two Poetry Awards

Two winners of The Salem News Spring Poetry Contest come from the Gordon College community. Grand Prize winner Chris McClure, a senior English major, took the grand prize for his poem “The Parousia.” A resident of Wenham, McClure’s poem shares “the delicacy and drive of hope and the way spring breaks through from winter.”

Dorothy Boorse, associate professor of biology, was selected as a finalist in the adult female category of poetry submissions. Video of all the winners reading their poetry is available online at The Salem News website.
