Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

We expect that poets will enjoy the experience of creating the work, and further expect that residents and students will realize that they are potential poets. The capstone event will bring poets and others together to celebrate the work at an enlivening reading.Counting the number of people who submit poems and the number of poems submitted is a concrete measure of success. We will track the amount of media coverage, number and relative enthusiasm of volunteer support, participation and responses from an evaluation survey.

Measurable Outcome(s)

We increased the number of poem submissions over last year, increased quality of winning poems by attestation of a panel of jurors, installed winning poems in sidewalks in historic downtown, and surveyed downtown business owners to evaluate the value to them and the results were made public.
