Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Increase awareness and appreciation of high quality poetry by area high school students. 85% of attendees of the reading and workshop will report that the events added value to their lives, and changed the way they think about literature in general and poetry in particular. Track number of student attendees at all events, track this info, and compare to previous years. All attendees will be given an evaluation survey regarding how they feel about the arts, poets, and poetry. Use Interviews and anecdotal evidence to assess if Verse Like Water is having an impact on the people who participate in it. Mark Ambrose, CLC Videography instructor, will set up a spot where patrons can be interviewed about their experience and this will be archived.
