Poetry Slam

Join us on campus for this fun, free event celebrating UArts’ BFA in Creative Writing program. High school juniors and seniors are invited to show off their creative writing talents by reading their work for family, friends and peers. Awards at this juried event will include tuition scholarships for the UArts Pre-College Summer Institute and the Creative Writing program.

The new Creative Writing BFA offers unique opportunities for aspiring young writers, including collaborations with other student artists and internships with The American Poetry Review, an esteemed national poetry magazine housed right here at UArts.
