Glascock Poetry Contest

The Kathryn Irene Glascock Intercollegiate Poetry Contest is the oldest continuously-running poetry contest for undergraduate students in the United States. Students from invited schools are judged by a panel of three distinguished poets.

Mount Holyoke's student contestant is chosen by a committee made up of students and faculty. Calls for submission usually go out to all students at the end of the Fall semester, and the contestant is usually announced in February. Students can email the English Department for more information.
