The Student Poetry Contest is seeking CHAMPION READERs.
People who all year long, at whatever venue they attend when appropriate,
read the winning poems of the PSV Student Poetry Contest.
Add literary culture to the events you attend. Be the voice.
Ask to be included at the beginning of a workshop or program;
ask to be the opener.... When this happens: good poetry is heard,
excellent public exposure for the poet, the educator,
the school and department, and the Poetry Society of Virginia.
Log your readings directly in this official program
on the included READING LOG pages at the beginning
of category section. Later email your reading log (word doc
or scan will do) to the Student Poetry Contest Chairperson.
This step is important for additional funding, grants and sponsorship;
the committee needs this documentation. Let us know where these
winning poets and their poems are being read.
PSV members please read a Winning Student Poem
at every event of the PSV.
Thank you for supporting these student poetry winners.
