Tuesday, November 18th @6:00 pm in Foster Auditorium, followed by a reception in the Mann Assembly room.

We are pleased to announce that Poetry Without Borders returns this semester! And we are officially looking for readers at the event!

Readers must:

  • choose a poem in a world language other than English inspired by the theme of Tides of Changes
  • limit their reading to no longer than 2-3 minutes
  • provide two electronic copies of the poem (original language and English translation as a doc file, no PDFs!) no later than Monday, November 3, 2013
  • wish to share their love of poetry

Please send your two electronic copies of the poem to:

What is Poetry without Borders? It is an annual, university-wide, student-run poetry reading forum where students and faculty expose the audience to different languages and cultures. The event aims to bring together people with different backgrounds and passions. In the past, we had contributions from students and faculty from different majors and research fields in languages such as German, Chinese, Spanish, French, Mongolian, Kazakhs, Norwegian, Vietnamese, Korean, Indonesian, Turkish, Hebrew, Dutch, Russian, Ukrainian, and Portuguese.

I look forward to seeing you all there, and if you don’t want to read a poem, I hope you will come to the event to hear the poetry!

Also, please check out our website with all the pictures uploaded from last year’s event!! (FINALLY!!)
