Creative Writing Professors: Help Showcase Student Poetry from your students.
For the Winter Issue of the Halcyone we are asking creative writing professors in any accredited college or university to nominate their undergraduate students that exhibit exemplary writing skills in poetry to showcase in that issue and our online blog. Links will be provided to your creative writing program in our blog.
The issue will celebrate the achievements of student writers and highlight the diverse range of writing created by these students. The showcase offers a great opportunity for young writers to interact with an audience beyond their classrooms and for readers to learn about the rich variety of work done by students in your college.
Our intent is to share writing that is innovative and brave, full of fresh language that excites us as readers and as writers, honed in on the depth and variety of human experience. We want to showcase the talent and maturity of today's undergraduate student poets. There is a great deal of emerging talent in the undergraduate population, and we strive to showcase that talent in our an annual issue.
To nominate a student:
Writers and artists must be actively enrolled undergraduate students in a degree-granting institution at the time of submission to be considered for this showcase. Please include the name of your college and the student’s current year (freshman, junior, etc.), as well as any other relevant information, in a brief cover letter.
We look forward to reading exciting and innovative poetry produced at your college!
