Connecticut Student Poetry Award
Students interested in submitting for the Connecticut Student Poetry Award should hand in two copies of 5 pages of poetry (which might be one long poem or several poems, and not necessarily five poems) to Jane Bordiere in the English Department office by noon on Wed. 8 October. The winner of Yale’s nomination should be willing to participate in most of the scheduled readings—some of which may be daytime readings, although most should be in the evenings—between Jan. 26 and March 6, 2015. There are typically 6-8 readings across the state, and you will be expected to provide your own transportation to get to them. You should be willing to take on this commitment if you want to participate in the contest. Students receive a modest stipend of $325, but this will obviously not cover transportation costs for people who do not have a car or free access to a car.
Any questions can be addressed to Prof. Markovits, chair of this year’s English Department Prizes Committee, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
