This year, the Poetry Center at PCCC is celebrating its 37th anniversary. Its high quality programming — the Distinguished Poets Series, Allen Ginsberg Poetry Awards and book prizes, Paterson Literary Review, and New Jersey Poetry Calendar — continues to receive citations of excellence from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts.
Here is what people are saying about the Center...
I believe that Maria Gillan and The Poetry Center at Passaic County Community College provide some of the best opportunities for the region’s poets to ply their craft and express their creativity.
Maria and the Poetry Center are the jewels of Paterson…an invaluable resource for writers and those who love poetry.
The Poetry Center is one of the stars in the constellation of fine poetry and art. It’s one of the best places to write and share poetry.
To continue to expand our work on behalf of poetry, we need your support. Maria Mazziotti Gillan,
Executive Director, asks you to consider giving a monetary gift to the Poetry Center this holiday season. No matter how big or small, they are deeply appreciative of any donation you can give.
Please send your donation check (payable to PCCC) along with your name, address, email and phone number to: The Poetry Center, Passaic County Community College, One College Blvd., Paterson, NJ 07505
