Poetry, music event to raise money for Mississippi State University literary magazine
April 4, 2003
STARKVILLE, Miss. — A poetry jam will be held April 26 at a Starkville establishment to raise funds for Jabberwock Review, Mississippi State University’s literary journal.
In addition to a variety of poetry readings, the 8 p.m. public event at Big Daddys (223 Main Street) will feature performances by three musical groups, “Young Agent Jones,” “John Black Attack” and “The Persians.”
Becky Hagenston, assistant English professor and publication adviser, said all proceeds from the $5-per-person cover charge will go to the journal. The funds will be added to ongoing support provided by the Office of the Provost, College of Arts and Sciences, University Honors Program, English department, and subscriptions.
Published twice a year by MSU students and faculty, Jabberwock features works of art, poetry and fiction submitted by local and national writers.
Hagenston said the journal currently is soliciting black-and-white photographs for consideration as a cover for this year’s spring issue. The winning selection receives $50.
For more information about the poetry jam or the “Jabberwock” cover art competition, contact Hagenston at (662) 325-2348 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
