The Charles Crupi Memorial Poetry Contest
2015 Contest Open for Submissions
Albion College sponsors a poetry contest for high school students in Michigan. The contest is dedicated to Charles Crupi, a beloved English professor at Albion who passed away in 2009.Professor Crupi believed that language matters, that poems matter, that students matter -- and that is precisely what this contest is about: language, poems, students. We hope that you will consider entering the contest, if you are a high school student, or encouraging others to do so if you are a teacher, parent, or friend of a Michigan high school student. All Michigan high school students are eligible to enter.
Winners will be chosen by a panel of judges selected by the Albion College English Department. All participants will be notified of results after all poems are read and judged. The winners will not only take home cash ($250, $150, $100 for our top three winners); their work will also be published in our fine journal, The Albion Review.
All poets who submit their work will be invited to a poetry reading on the Albion College campus this spring and will have a chance to interact with the men and women who continue to value what Professor Crupi and this contest both value: language, poetry, students.
All entries must be uploaded online by February 7, 2015
