The WCC Poetry Club welcomes any Washtenaw Community College (WCC) student, faculty member, staff member, or alumnus who is interested in poetry or creative writing. Tom Zimmerman (that’s me), who teaches English at WCC, is the faculty advisor of the club.
As of now, we have no set schedule of meetings, but we will meet periodically. I’ll email members a week or so in advance of any meeting and will also post notice of it on the homepage of this site.
A Brief History
The WCC Poetry Club began around 2006, with WCC English instructor and Writing Center director Tom Zimmerman, Writing Center tutors Zach Baker and Mike Moriarty, and WCC student Joey Sims.
The club met regularly (usually every Friday that classes were in session) for more than 10 years, through the Winter 2017 Semester. During this time, we hosted more than 25 open-mic readings (some with featured guests), both on and off campus; and we published 19 chapbook anthologies, 10 of which are accessible in digital format from this site.
If you are interested in poetry, you will find us helpful and supportive.
