The Poetry Scroll

"Denver's Longest Poem" is coming to Auraria. The "Poe Torrah," is a
poetry scroll that was built by the mayors staff. Denver's Poet
Laureate, Chris Ransick, in conjunction with the mayor's office
created the scroll with intent to get people to actively pursue,
create, and contemplate poetry as a living artform. Upon its
completion, the scroll will be housed in some sort of public building,
but before that it will be making a stop here at Auraria.

The scroll will be displayed at a table by the flagpole on Thursday,
October 4, from 9:45am-5:00pm and Friday October 5 from 9:45am-
3:00pm. We would like to encourage all Auraria students to
participate by writing their poetry on the scroll. We also want to
remind all writers that the scroll may be housed in a public venue,
such as a school, and to please keep the content appropriate to all

The scroll is brought to you by Denver Poets Association and
MetroPoets (Sigma Tau Delta). For more info on either organization, please email
