Poetry Out Loud is Here!
Poetry Out Loud is an annual event at RHS in which students choose favorite poems and perform them out loud (after memorizing them of course). It is more than just memorizing and reciting. It is a chance to make the poem come to life. If it is a poem that has meaning for you personally, it is a way to relate that meaning to others.
If you need more information about the contest or the way the whole thing works, talk to your English teacher, a classmate or Miss Cahill in Room 125. But don’t wait, because you need to sign-up with Miss Cahill by Tuesday, Dec. 22!
You can also check the Veritas archives to read about past contests and contestants. As you will see it is not about winning, as much as appreciating how poetry is meant to be listened to as well as read out loud!
