Poetry Challenge

Over the last few days in the SLA journalism class the students have been brainstorming to bring some brand new ideas to the table. One of the most recent ideas has been to create a little bit of a competition. In the last few years many new poets have been popping up on the SLA grounds and have brought rhyme back into focus. Now it’s your turn to take part and submit some poetry!

Each month, a new theme for the poems will be given. There are two categories a month, the first being poems about fall and giving thanks for the month of November. The second category will continue on through each month, and is exclusively for confessions of love, or just love poems. The poems will remain anonymous as to who they are from. Who they are written to, however, is completely up to the writer if they wish to provide a name. 


The poems can be of any style, but mustn’t include anything inappropriate, or else they will be disqualified.

If written for the Monthly Column, they are to include a name, date, title (obviously), and a little background as to what inspired you (this part will not necessarily be entered into the Pioneer, but it will help us in the decision process).

Students must submit their poems to the designated box in the History Room.


The winners’ poems will appear in the printed and e-issue of the SLA Pioneer. 

We wish the best of luck to those who submit! We look forward to reading your entries!
