The Crowder Quill, a literary and art magazine of Crowder College, will host the annual awards ceremony with a campus- and community-wide poetry reading. The event will take place Thursday, May 9 at 7 p.m. in Elsie Plaster Community Center Auditorium on the campus of Crowder College in Neosho, Mo.
“This year’s ceremony and publication continues the 39-year tradition of our mission to encourage and showcase our area’s authors and artists,” said Latonia Bailey, Crowder Quill adviser since 1994.
The event includes the announcement of those whose entries were chosen to be published in the 2019 edition and awards presentations. All published entrants will receive a certificate for gold, silver, bronze or honorable mention. Award placements will not be announced until the ceremony.
Afterwards, the magazine will be unveiled, and light refreshments will be served. The public is welcome to attend.
A PowerPoint Presentation will showcase the winning photography and art entries during the ceremony. Remaining entries will not be displayed but will be available for pickup after the ceremony.
