WVU’s Alpha Xi Chapter of Sigma Tau Delta was excited to hold a poetry slam this semester! For the slam, undergraduate students could share some of their poetry and compete for prizes. A noncompetitive section was also open to anyone who wanted to share their work.
Kyra Foster, a Sigma Tau Delta member who also helped plan the event, was an amazing emcee! Here, she starts the slam off with a hilarious limerick about the event.
Four students in WVU’s MFA in Creative Writing Program volunteered as judges for the slam. From left to right, Liam Wholihan, a second-year poet, Anna Schles, a second-year fiction writer, Ola ElWassify, a first-year poet, and Shannon Virtue, a first-year nonfiction writer.
The delicious cupcakes were another highlight of the event!
