Poet’s Corner invites you to join fellow poetry enthusiasts for a monthly reading by a featured local poet at 7:00 pm–8:00 pm in Fondren Hall.
Poet’s Corner is always free and open to the public.
Over the years, various themes have surfaced: religious and faith based; emotions including love, hate, hurt, frustration, etc; personal reflections and observations of life; nature; resistance to the “isms” of society. Our initial purposes were to provide a space for poets to read their work in an informal setting, to talk about their poems, and to be in dialogue with the audience. Audiences have included family, friends, former students, other poets, and many simply interested in hearing good poetry.
Organ Concerts will be offered on in Wightman Chapel throughout the season of Lent.

The Nashville Chapter of the AGO is one of the most active in the country, and in the past few years has hosted a regional convention (1995) and a national convention (2012). The current dean (president) of the Nashville Chapter is Marsha Scheusner, a Scarritt College alumna.

The Labyrinth is a powerful symbol of spiritual journey that was introduced into medieval prayer practice when traditional pilgrimages to the holy land became too dangerous for most travelers. Both in that time, and in our time, people have found it helpful for meditation.
