Literary Journal Staff Offer Custom-Written Poems for Valentine’s Day

Belmont Literary Journal managing editor Logan Franks, poetry editor Emmie Futtrell, creative nonfiction editor Lauren Paxton and art director Greg Privett offered custom-written Valentine’s Day poems in the Beaman Student Life Center on Fri., Feb. 12. The one-of-a-kind poems, composed on the spot and typed on a 1936 Royal Portable typewriter, were available at no cost to the Belmont community (although donations were gladly accepted). Proceeds will benefit the 2010 Belmont Literary Journal, a student-edited, student-written, student-produced annual journal of art, poetry, fiction and creative nonfiction. The Poetry Stand, whose purpose is to offer the larger community a way to create and delight in the creation of poetry and word-based art, was designed and donated to Belmont English students by Bret and Meg MacFadyen, founders of Nashville’s Art and Invention gallery.
