Western Pennsylvania Writing Project

Poe*Art 2010

Where Poetry, spoken word, and Visual Art INtersect

May 8th, Cultural District, Pittsburgh


On Saturday May 8th, 40 WPWP fellows and friends gathered in the Peirce Studio at the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust to celebrate the voices, visions, and stories of ten WPWP fellows.  Fellows from the 1980s, 1990s and 2000s read original poetry, exhibited artwork, and spoke of how the Writing Project helped them develop their voices.  Please enjoy the words and images from fellows and friends of the Western Pennsylvania Writing Project.  Details about the poets, poetry, and artwork are available on each of the fellow’s Poe*Art pages.

All photographs in this online exhibit were taken by Ruth Hendricks, WPWP Fellow 1993.  For more of Ruth’s photographic work, visit: http://www.ruthiehendricks.com


An age-old saying states "a picture is worth a thousand words."  On may 8th, 10 Western Pennsylvania Writing Project Fellows put that statement to the test in Poe.Art 2010!
