uc_kbridgfordThe Mezzo Cammin Women Poets Timeline Project, designed to become the largest database of women poets in the world, will be launched in Washington, D.C., on Saturday, March 27, at 6:00 p.m. at the National Museum of Women in the Arts. The project is an outgrowth of Mezzo Cammin, a web journal devoted to poetry by women that was founded four years ago by Dr. Kim Bridgford, professor of English at Fairfield University.

The event, which takes place during Women’s History Month, is both a celebration of women’s accomplishments and a fundraiser for the timeline and will feature poets Rhina Espaillat, Annie Finch, Marilyn Nelson, Alicia Ostriker, Molly Peacock, and Terri Witek. The featured visual artist is Alice Mizrachi.
