Vision + Voice Poetry Content Begins

The Austin Community College Vision+Voice poetry contest give students a literacy experience that fosters creativity and self expression.

Each year, one winning poem and several honorable mentions are selected per grade level by a panel of judges consisting of ACC Creative Writing students and faculty.

Vision+Voice provides students multiple opportunities to share their work:

  • All submitted poems are published at

  • Winning and honorable mention poets are invited to videotape their poems at KLRU studios, and these videos are posted on the Vision+Voice youtube channel and the KLRU website.

  • Winning and honorable mention poems are published in a paperback anthology.

  • Winning poems are paired with original artwork by ACC students to produce posters that are displayed across ACC campuses and throughout Austin.

  • Public readings and poster exhibits are hosted by Malvern Books.

  • Each April, ACC hosts an awards reception during National Poetry Month to celebrate the students, teachers and parents who participated in Vision+Voice.
