Panel Discussion: Disaster & Hope

February 22, we sent an email about the Voices from Japan: Perspectives on Disaster and Hope exhibit coming to Colorado College. At that time, CC Professor Joan Ericson accepted poetry submissions that were personal responses to the Waldo Canyon Fire. Please click here to read the original email including further details about the section of the exhibit dedicated to the Waldo Canyon Fire.

We'd like to remind you about a panel discussion that will feature poetry written in response to the Waldo Canyon Fire as part of the ongoing events surrounding the exhibit.
