Poetry Out Loud

I’m honored once again to serve as a judge for the Mississippi state Poetry Out Loud competition, taking place this Thursday, March 10. Featuring talented high school students from across the state competing for a trip to the national recitation in May, the afternoon is a perfect way to celebrate the art, to hear new poems, and to cheer on young performers. The contest begins at 1pm at Mississippi Public Broadcasting studios, and is open to the public.
