Poetry Out Loud

Poetry Out Loud Open Round this Wednesday in the Library

Poetry Out Loud is a national competition in which students recite poems from the POL anthology in front of a live audience. Performances will be evaluated based on physical presence and articulation as well as interpretation and understanding of the work. This is a great opportunity to hone public speaking skills and learn about both contemporary poetry and literary history!
