Phoenix Club

PHOENIX CLUB The Phoenix Club was an organization started for poetically-inclined students in 1938, so named because it rose up out of the ashes of the Smith College Poetry Club, which was founded in 1933 and died out in 1938. The group published and broadcast their work and received much support for their efforts from those within and outside the college community alike. Membership was limited to those with special talent for and interest in poetry and each member was required to submit an original work for criticism at alternate weekly meetings. The group also sponsored meetings and readings with famous and local poets and attempted to make poetry an important part of Smith College student life.
