Creative Sustenance

The University of Connecticut at Waterbury

Creative Sustenance
in support of the
Greater Waterbury Interfaith Ministries


Tom Dulack Professor of English, UConn/Waterbury; a playwright whose works have been performed on Broadway, in London, in Los Angeles, and in too many other venues to mention; when the New York Philharmonic wanted to revive the Young Peoples’ Concerts that had been so successful when led by Leonard Bernstein, they selected Tom to write and direct each performance. He is now filling a similar role for the Los Angeles Philharmonic while still masterminding the concerts for New York.

Ira Joe Fisher Poet, actor, educator, and perhaps best known as a Weatherman and features reporter on WNBC/Channel 4 and later WCBS/Channel 2 in New York City. Ira Joe now teaches Creative Writing, Introduction to Poetry, and other English courses at UConn/Stamford. He is a recent winner of a Governor’s Award, given to those who volunteer their time to support Culture and Tourism in CT.

Davyne Verstandig Director of the Litchfield County Writers and Artists Project and Lecturer in English at UConn/Torrington. Davyne, who is an accomplished poet and essayist, also serves as the Director of the Creative Writing Program at UConn/Torrington.

Creative Sustenance began at UConn/Storrs in 2003 to help the Windham Interfaith Ministry feed the hungry in Willimantic, CT. People come to hear readings by poets, playwrights, novelists, and other talented writers. They bring donations of non-perishable food, checks, or both, in support of the chosen local charity. This event at Waterbury means that we have now had Creative Sustenance events on each of the six UConn campuses.

Where: The Multi-Purpose Room at UConn/Waterbury
When: Monday, March 31, 2008, 7:00-9:00PM
