Fall Poetry Contest

Every fall semester, the department of Modern Languages and Literatures sponsors a Poetry Recitation Contest in which students in Modern Languages courses compete in performing poetry recitations in the language studied.

Requirements

With your professor's input, choose a poem in the language you study at Loyola (Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish). Memorize your poem! Work with your professor to master it! Be prepared to introduce the poem - author, time period, why you chose it, other details you'd like to share.

Eligibility

Students who wish to participate must have the support of their language instructor. Students currently enrolled in 103 and up are eligible.

Sign Up

The application deadline is announced during the fall semester.
