April is National Poetry Month and since April 1997 the College’s English Department faculty members have organized and sponsored the Mad River Literary Festival. The Festival week of events features free public readings by professional poets, fiction and nonfiction writers. In addition to prominent visiting writers brought in to highlight the Festival, an Open Reading of original creative work by NCCC students and community residents is also presented. Students are encouraged to sign up and read their work at the Festival’s Open Reading. Funding for the Mad River Literary Festival comes from the College’s Cultural Planning Committee, The Student Senate, The Center for Teaching, and the English Department.
