The Glascock Poetry Competition: Student competition

This is a past event.

The main event of the annual collegiate poetry competition is the student competition.

The 96th annual Kathryn Irene Glascock ’22 Intercollegiate Poetry Competition showcases the up-and-coming poetry talent of regional college students by inviting six accomplished college students to campus to compete for the title — and accomplished poets to serve as judges.

The six student contestants will recite their poetry in the main event over the competition weekend. All events are free and open to the public.
