The English Department is delighted to present its 19th annual festival of original writing by COC faculty, university, and staff: the Poets and Writers Reading. It’s a chance for individuals who write to connect with others about their writing, poetry, or other fiction and their love for good writing! The festival is free and open to all students enrolled in English courses. However, children under the age of twelve (with parent consent) are not permitted to participate in the program. This award-winning festival draws hundreds of visitors to the English department every year. Here are some of the poet and writer favorites from past events:

2021 winner Michael Chabon: His poetry collection, Swords, is a gorgeous, poetic, and profoundly moving collection that will make you feel both inspired and rejuvenated. A poetic tale of loss and transformation, Swords takes you on a journey through time and space as it chronicles the poet’s spiritual and physical journeys throughout his life. Each poem is wonderfully illustrated with rich, high-resolution photographs accompanied by lively, descriptive texts. Chabon’s poems “Map of the Ages,” “The Naked Face,” and “Love,” will all draw the attention of both student and non-student guests. This is a wonderful workshop for poets looking to increase their writing ability and writers looking for inspiration and motivation.

2021 bronze winner: After her amazing win in the poetry slam, “A Time of Honeymoon and Twilight” author Jennifer Jeffries set off on a world tour, traveling to seven countries in six months to promote her book and increase visibility for her release. She enjoyed the experience so much she made a book tour schedule that will be similar in the future. This double act of public visibility and fanfare was a selling point for her and helped boost her reputation as one of the best poets in the country. Her poetry will always be appreciated by lovers of poetry and those who love to celebrate new beginnings. If you are a lover of poetry or an admirer of great literature, this is the right event for you to take part in.

2021 winner of the International slam poetry competition: This was a very close competition between four British poets who all received their slams at the same year and placed in the same division. Regarded as one of the best poets in the world, Matt Ball’s collection “God Save the Wolf” won him the award. Poets who enjoy the poetry of James Joyce have not given up hope of one day sharing the Nobel Prize with him. Ball is one of the most accomplished poets working today.

2021 winner of the International slam poetry competition: This was a competition between four British poets who all received their slams at the same year and placed in the same division. The poems were judged on style, sentimentality, originality, and originality in composition. The poems that won this competition went on to become the favorite poems of readers and have been featured in some of the most popular poetry books around the world. Vishwanath Tiwari, Ravi Verma, Amrita Sher-Gil, and Sukhwinder Singh are known as the “Godfathers of Modern Indian Writing”. These poets have gone on to receive many other awards for their poetry and have inspired many more poets.

2021 winner of the Satellite Award for Outstanding Achievement in Poetry: This award was presented by the Satellite Publishers and was presented to PV Sundaram, a prominent writer from India. The Satellite Awards aim at highlighting the contribution made by authors outside traditional publishing houses and highlighting one-man/woman publishing houses. It also aims to encourage authors and publishers to diversify their product offerings and build upon their previous success.

2021 winner of the Pushkar pulp prize: This award was presented by the Pushkar literary festival. The judging committee had selected Pushkar as one of the cities with the maximum number of books of prose written by poets. Pushkar was chosen from among over 500 poems in all. Pushkar was one of the three cities along with Delhi and Khajuraho, which was chosen as the cities with the maximum number of Pushkar temples. The poems written by these poets have inspired millions of people around the world.

The proliferation of self-publishing houses has increased the scope and impact of poetry in the Indian literary world. It has also increased the scope and impact of poets in the wider Indian audience. The popularity of poets like Kalid Ali, Mulk Raj Anand, Kamala Markandya, Amrita Sher-Gil, Manish Malhotra and others has increased tremendously. In this competitive and multicultural society, poets and writers are constantly under threat.


Oceanic arts are those artistic creations of different cultures and individuals that occur on a grand scale in the open oceans, usually in the physical ocean, but occasionally in the vernacular, oceanic tongue. These artistic creations are mostly created of painted glass, plastic, or various other forms of man-made materials. Oceanic arts share similarities with other types of art such as fine arts, photography, printmaking, and music. Many of these works are created by amateurs around the world who use their creative minds along with their technical skills to craft these extraordinary works of art. Some examples of oceanic arts include fountains, crescent mirrors, stained glass windows, jewelry boxes, sea nets, wind chimes, wooden sculptures, and wooden crosses.

The works of Robert van Oosting are some of the most renowned oceanic arts. Van Oosting is a Dutch artist who is best known for his paintings of underwater creatures. Some of his more popular works include “Journey to the Bottom of the Sea”, “On Whales”, “Juratangas”, and “Beaches”. Other works by van Oosting are “The Cavefish”, “Starry Night in Nantucket”, “Biology”, “Starfish”, “Lullaby of the Deep”, “Dogs in Lake Makgadikgadi”, “Euphorism”, and “Mystery at the Selected Port”. All of these works were showcased during the exhibits “Art and Wildlife: An International Exhibition”, organized by the Royal Society of Arts in London, UK.

Another artist who is also well known for his oceanic arts and crafts is Bob van Oosting. He is a master carver and creator of tiki statues. His most famous creation is the tiki statue called the Reel Treasure which was made in 2021. Bob van Oosting is also the founder of the company New World Designs.

The oceanic arts and crafts industry are very diverse. It has its own style, its own artists, and its own materials to work with. One important aspect of it that is often left out is the use of native American tikis. These authentic tikis are unique not only because of their beautiful design but also because they have symbolic meaning. In many native American tribes tikis represent the relationship between the tribe and nature. For example, a time symbolizing a white snake can mean the Cherokee’s undying love for the earth or the Native Americans’ adherence to spiritual beliefs.

The uniqueness of the oceanic arts comes from its ability to depict stories and cultural experiences in such rich detail. Oceanic arts like the tiki masks have been used to tell stories of the islands where the artists live. For example, there are times depicting scenes from the Polynesian Islands. They are full of awe-inspiring beauty, exoticism, and awe. Each island is different; the people are different, the culture is varied, and each island holds a story and an adventure for the voyager looking to journey to the farthest reaches of Polynesia. Whether you journey to the pacific islands or simply to Hawaii for fantastic beaches, the oceanic arts will give you a truly memorable experience.

Among the more popular tikis for oceanic arts and crafts are tiki masks from the island of Oahu. There is a tiny museum in Waikiki where you can see many pieces of art including the famed mask from the Polynesian Village Resort. The mask is called Leroy and is said to have originally been created by the ancient Tahiti people as a symbol of protection from evil spirits. Legend has it that a Tahiti healer would make a pot of oil with lemons and enchant the evil spirit away with the lemons but the evil spirit would not go back into the oil so he scooped it up with his foot.

In addition to the masks that originally marked the Polynesian Village Resort’s tiki torches, there are also other great tips from the Polynesian Islands. For example, on the island of Oahu there is a great statue of two birds flying across with their wings outstretched. There is also the lehuai statues of birds from active volcanoes on each island. On the island of Molokai there is a statue of two people riding a dolphin, which symbolizes good fortune. And don’t forget the amazing Polynesian drums from Hawaii and Tahiti. There are even oceanic arts tikis that represent the Polynesian culture.

As you can see the possibilities of the oceanic arts and crafts are almost endless. The islands of Polynesia hold many wonderful stories and adventures waiting for the eager voyager and the artist in them. The Polynesian stories are a part of Polynesia forever. But don’t just take my word for it, visit some of the islands yourself and see for yourself.

In November 2017, after allegations of inappropriate behavior by Keillor toward an individual who worked for him on a freelance basis, Minnesota Public Radio terminated its contracts with him and his private media companies. This effectively ended the distribution and broadcast of The Writer’s Almanac via public radio, as well as rebroadcasts of Keillor’s A Prairie Home Companion. He and his wife Jenny Lind Nilsson live in Minneapolis, not far from the YMCA where he was sent for swimming lessons at age 12 after his cousin drowned, and he skipped the lessons and went to the public library instead and to a radio studio to watch a noontime show with singers and a band.

It implies that once we were in array and soon will be again, as soon as the problem is solved. I was in disarray myself, having forgotten to wear a hearing aid, so I didn’t understand most of what was said and had to pantomime comprehension, which I am good at, having been an English major and sat through lectures about books I hadn’t read. The gentleman on my left, however, was a Lutheran minister — and still is, so far as I know — and he spoke loud and clear, so I was not without company. He is a Dane and in Denmark the Lutheran church has debated whether belief in a Supreme Being should be required for ordination.

Nobody in Brooklyn speaks Brooklynese, it’s all gentrified. The press came down hard on Mets fans booing their team, one more sign that New York is turning into Seattle.

The most wonderful thing I have today that wasn’t available to me before is old age. “The Writer’s Almanac” has been played on public radio stations and in podcast form since 1993. When American Public Media cut ties with Garrison Keillor over accusations of inappropriate behavior, the show disappeared.

The station reinstated the program after receiving an “outpouring of support” for the show. This program was distributed in APM’s Classical 24 stream and a large percentage of stations that carry it air all or mostly Classical Music during other times.

Richard Dawkins argued against God’s existence, saying that omniscience and omnipotence are contradictory. I believe God will clear this up when we meet Him, meanwhile we live with disarray and pray for forgiveness. In my remaining years, I hope to forgive myself. The grounds are unused except for ten days a year, a neighborhood with streets, barns, arenas, shops, parking lots, all it needs are houses. In the Persian Quarter, the refugees could re-create what they love of their culture, and Americans weary of the Walmarts and work cubicles could travel abroad in St. Paul and find exotic style and fabulous cooking.

The country seems divided and so it takes forever to get basic stuff done and the sniping is ferocious and politicians don’t dare exhibit humor in public. As they say in Denmark, “Shut up and be beautiful.” I think about the beef taco I had for lunch and the salad with fresh tomato and basil, a very self-accepting cucumber, and a beautiful sliced onion, not a bitter resentful onion but an exuberant one. I think it may have started out as a cabbage but it transferred out of the program, wanting to be a root, and met other onions, experimented with different dressings and finally settled on straight oil/vinegar with ground pepper. I used to have countless readers and now here we are, the two of us, peas in a pod. I’ve never suffered from anxiety, I don’t know any QAnon people and I don’t have COVID, so I am going to skip complaining today. There is a limit to how much punishment people are willing to accept before they look around and consider greener pastures and meanwhile, in St. Paul, people thronged to the State Fair, devouring cheese curds and bratwursts, admiring the livestock and enjoying powerful centrifugal experiences.

Wood Crafts

Woodworking is easy to learn and get started but it can get more difficult as you move onto more complex projects. Yes, you can definitely make money as a woodworker at home. There are many people that are woodworking full-time at home. It’s just a piece of wood with a metal bottle opener screwed in. It’s pretty much the same design as a coat rack or mug rack but it will be smaller with smaller hooks since it’s just holding keys. Mug racks are just like coat racks, a wooden plank with hooks to hold items.

Paints that have a moderate consistency are usually best for wood surfaces. Although most craft paints are safe for general use, there are some paints that contain harmful toxins as well as allergens and other chemicals. It is a good idea to wear gloves, aprons, and other protective gear when working with these paints and to have adequate ventilation when working with any paint. To avoid getting paint on surfaces that join the one you are working on, use painters’ tape to mask the surface. Position the tape so that its edge lines up cleaning with the surface you want to paint and make sure to push the tape tightly against its surface. Once painting is complete, remove the tape to reveal a clean, crisp joint line.

With a unique spin, they can be a great source of income selling anywhere between $8 and $30 apiece. With the right plan, you can earn a full-time living from the following amazing small wood projects. If you are short on skills don’t worry, these are easy to make crafts. DIYS.COM DIYs.com is an up-and-coming community of people specialized in high-quality and on-trend DIY projects and tutorials in home design, fashion, and crafts.

It’s not hard to create bowls, you just have to experience with different designs and sizes. Now, these dishes are usually made of waterproof materials such as ceramic and plastic and as you know wood is not a waterproof material. Coat racks are just wooden planks with hooks on them for people to hang their coats. A bathtub caddy is pretty much a wooden board with sections to hold different things and it lays across the bathtub. Candlemakers might even purchase your candle holders to use with their candles and sell to customers. An item similar to chairs but less work to create is stools.

This woodworking project doesn’t get stale, because you cannot run out of ideas for new designs, and also because it is a wood project that will always be in demand. Discovering the wood crafts that sell well is all the more important with todays woodworking because of the competition with the factories and mass manufactures. Individual handmade woodcrafts are still in for a keen fight simply because of the sheer variety of things that can be made with woodworking. This easy and customizable wall hanging is a fun way to add a little whimsy to your holiday décor without devoting a lot of time to a project.

Of course, you will need to buy a chalkboard to create this item but you will frame the chalkboard in a nice wooden frame and sell it to people. A simple item you can create and sell is wood-framed chalkboards. You can create some simple toys like building blocks and then start creating more complex toys like cars and trains. It’s not hard to make and it can fetch you some good money so I highly recommend creating wooden jewelry boxes. Some jewelry boxes are simple to make but you can create more personalized and creative boxes by doing carvings and bevels.


Wood Craft Supplies, Wood Cutouts, Wooden Shapes

Plus, the course includes 100’s of done-for-you blueprints for many different products so all you have to do is follow the step-by-step guides to create awesome wooden items. I’ve found a really good one lately in boxes that you can sit a phone in and they basically act as a simple amplifier. Quite fun to make, and I’ve come up with loads of different designs. I recently came across a resource that shares tons of woodworking plans and ideas. I absolutely love the wood toys here on the top of the page, as well as the bird house. Could it be the fact that it is a comfy dwelling for our beautiful flying friends that are full of energy and keep moving around?

There was a time when toys made out of wood were the common thing. You only have to ask around to realise the premium, crazy prices being charged by stores for wooden toys for children. Many of them are small woodcrafts that are simple in construction, and yet highly popular and profitable. The category of small wood crafts is something you must definitely explore to come with many more profitable ideas of your own.

They also resist yellowing and provide the long-term flexibility that oil-based paints lack. They do, however, require more coats than oil-based paints. The thickness or “weight” of the paint is another important consideration when working with wood. Paint that is too thick may not spread well enough on the wood’s surface, but paint that is too thin may seep too deeply into the pores.

People are harsh out there so you got to be tougher and more demanding. I don’t know if they have any where you live, but look for a craftmart where you can rent a booth, place your items and they have one cashier to make the sale. One word of warning, brand your items in a way that can’t be easily removed and keep an accurate inventory. Sure, you can make different things from other materials, but they don’t compare to wood in many senses.

To make your project’s surface even smoother, sand the first coat of primer once it is dry and apply a second coat on top. Milk paints are ideal for giving wood surfaces a rustic, worn look. Non-toxic and durable, these water-based paints are easy to clean up with mild soap and water. This non-toxic acrylic paint is suitable for indoor and outdoor use and a variety of surfaces and skill levels.
