Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Our success will be measured by a) who we are able to feature in our readings; b) quality of the readings; and c) attendance at the readings.We plan to evaluate by feedback from the writers/poets who participate in the reading series; feedback from audiences at the event; and by keeping a head count at each of our events so we are better able to meet our mission.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Count of audience attendance at each reading; poets' responses/reflections before and after the reading; response to posting notification of readings on social media (i.e. Facebook, etc.); poster distribution; e-mail press releases; word-of-mouth.
