Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

My primary goal is to heighten language awareness through poetry.Attendance numbers and word of mouth comments are helpful indicators of whether the project has achieved its ends. Reputable publication of the poetry collection will indicate critical success.

Measurable Outcome(s)

In exceeded my quantitative expectations in regard to page lengths of individual poems and a longer than anticipated lyrical narrative piece. I do have a subjective standard of quality for what constitutes a "good" poem. Each poem meets that criteria.
