Every year, the Department of English hosts two events designed to showcase the depth of our students’ writing and performance talents.

Submission Instructions:

  • Submissions can be in any genre (poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction, spoken word, etc.) and must be no longer than 5-6 minutes when read aloud.
  • If you are submitting a performative piece, such as spoken word poetry or a song with musical accompaniment, you may submit audio or video files.
  • Any student who is or was registered in an English course during the academic year is welcome to make a submission.

The competition for Spring 2023 has now closed.
We thank everyone that submitted their work this year.
