The online audio literary journal From the Fishouse, co-founded by Bowdoin Magazine Editor Matt O’Donnell and Camille T. Dungy, a professor at Colorado State University, has been included in The Huffington Post‘s compilation of the top 200 advocates for American poetry.

Created to promote the oral tradition of poetry, From the Fishouse takes its name — and spelling — from the writing cabin of the late Maine writer, Lawrence Sargent Hall ’36, who taught English at Bowdoin from 1946 to 1986.

The actual Fishouse now sits in the woods behind O’Donnell’s home. Along with its online offerings, Fishouse runs a visiting poet reading series on campus, co-sponsored by the Bowdoin College Alpha Delta Phi Society Literary Fund.

    Kudos to Matthew, Camille, and all of the people who’ve supported From the Fishouse over the past decade-plus. It is a real accomplishment for American poetry!
