Following the Before I Die experiment, the Fredonia Rotaract Club would like to encourage you to reflect on your life and share your aspirations with us!
The Relay for Life organization is in collaboration with the American Cancer Society to fight American’s biggest health concern — cancer.
Our hope is that any donations/participation will go towards helping our club to support and raise money for The Relay for Life of SUNY Fredonia.
The Big Read Poetry Slam and Kick Off
What is a poetry slam? A poetry slam is a competition at which poets read or recite original work or the work of others. The performances were judged on a numeric scale by previously selected members of the audience. Brandon Williamson, our MC for this event is the founder of Pure Ink Poetry Slam of Buffalo, recent winners in Toronto and Albany Poetry competitions.
Each poet presented two poems, one by Emily Dickinson, one original work. Poets had 3 minutes in which to present a poem. Poems were judged on a 10.0 point scale by 5 randomly selected judges. The highest and lowest scores were dropped. The middle scores served as the final score for the poem. Costumes and special effects are not permitted in poetry slams. First and second place prizes were awarded for the highest combined scores.
Students in ENGL 332, Romanticism in American Literature, researched archives of Emily Dickinson’s original manuscripts, which are digitized and accessible on the internet.
They designed these posters to exhibit selections of incredible hand-written letters, poems, and even dried flowers from Dickinson’s own collection.
Working with Dickinson’s manuscripts brings to life her poetic process and her life story in exciting ways. These posters are designed to share glimpses into the remarkable life and legacy of a great poet.
