In only the second time in its history, Middlesex Community College has an official “Connecticut Student Poet” among its ranks. The student, Hannah Watkins, is the first MxCC student to receive this honor in more than 36 years. As part of this honor, Watkins will read her poems at events throughout the state, and will have some of her work published in the fall 2011 issue of the prestigious “Connecticut Review” creative arts publication.
Hannah visited Macdonough School today to share some of her poetry with students and talk about the writing process! She was accompanied by Professor Christine Ruggiero from MxCC.
