(Participants can submit one entry per prompt.)

  • Write an Ode to a Black History Hero
  • Write a response to Angela Gorman's "The Hill We Climb"
  • Write a response to Mecca Verdell's "Duck You Autocorrect"

Send ALL submissions to with the subject line "Poetry Contest". Note: It might be easiest to submit a video by recording your video on YouTube (or uploading it onto YouTube) and then marking it as unlisted and simply pasting the link into an email to us. Usually mp4 files are too big to successfully email.

Email Professor Miller for help submitting a spoken word entry:
