“Poetry Out Loud” returns for its third year

Last Wednesday marked the final competition for the third annual “Poetry Out Loud” event, which was sponsored by the English Department and Creative Writing Program in the Terrace Room in Margaret Jacks Hall. The competition showcased 10 strong finalists, and, after weeks of memorization and training, these finalists were ready to give their A-game. Not only did were the finalists a diverse group of Stanford students (only two of whom were English majors), they brought to the table a diverse collection of poetry, ranging from contemporary poetry to well-known classics, for example, Edgar Allen Poe’s “The Raven.”
