Poetry International is an annual literary journal published by SDSU with Ilya Kaminsky as editor-in-chief. SDSU’s MFA program is celebrating its 25th year. Alumni and current scholars will read from their original work at Poetry & Art.
The People’s Choice Poem Performance Award – All participants read/perform one poem under three minutes long. Audience members choose (by secret ballot) their favorite poem based on content and performance. Props, artwork, singing, music, dancing, all accompaniment is allowed and anything goes. Top poem performances (the poems that receive the most votes) win \$50. Audience members will be encouraged to hoot for their favorites and try to influence the rest of the audience.
