    Poetry CoffeeHouse Picture


    About 2 years ago, Bob Harrison Distance Education Librarian and English professors Janice Hoffman and Tom Rockson got together through a mutual love of poetry. They decided to host a monthly Poetry Coffeehouse to allow students, faculty and staff the opportunity to share their poetic talents. Though it started out slow, it has quickly gained momentum and popularity, and is now being held on both the Hampton and Historic Triangle Campuses. The Poetry Coffeehouse has even gained the attention of the Poetry Society of Virginia who was present at the first Coffeehouse and recorded it for their YouTube channel.

    Janice, Bob and Tom now lead the TNCC Poetry Club, which also has a home through Blackboard. They are also working earnestly to revive the TNCC Literary journal in the near future. Through their mutual love of poetry, they are building more opportunities for the Thomas Nelson Family to display its talents. For more information, please contact Bob Harrison at or (757)825-3829.
