End of Year Celebration

Celebrate National Poetry Month with the Writing Center in one last bash before we move!

April 25, 2022

April is National Poetry Month! A time in which we are reminded that poetry matters and poets play an important role in American culture. Over the years, National Poetry Month has become the largest literary celebration in the world! Join the celebration by attending in-person events in the Writing Center or participating in a virtual competition!

RU encompasses a diverse community of writers with unique voices and something to say. Let's celebrate National Poetry Month by being creative, hanging out in HH 4800 one last time, and winning some prizes! There will be plenty of snacks and fun to be had.


In-Person Events

When you participate in an in-person event, you'll enter into our raffle. We have a variety of fun prizes, including English Department t-shirts, CHBS swag, and more!. We're located in HH 4800, right above Starbucks.


The Writing Center will have ongoing activities from 3 - 4:30 p.m. These will include:

  • collaborative poetry writing
  • blackout poetry
  • a poeTREE
  • arts and crafts
  • games
  • a jar of poem topics
