Glascock Participants by Judges

A Little Bit of History

In 1976 and 1977, poet-judges were asked to hold informal conversations to preface the competition weekend. Since then, this introductory address has become tradition and is held on the first day of the competition, prior to student-poet readings later that evening. Judges also read their own poetry aloud in the form of the Judges' Poetry Reading, which takes place on Saturday morning of the competition weekend.
