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 visionandvoice.org
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.
