CSU Poetry Contest

For all of you creative writers out there, April is National Poetry Month! Do you want to win some awesome CSU swag? Submit one of your poems to us and we will publish it in the Communicator and also throughout our social media channels.

Don’t be shy! Even if you have to dig through your old mementos and find those poems you secretly wrote about your junior high crush, please share them! We will even share some of our own personal (and slightly embarrassing) poetry attempts. CSU has some very talented writers in our students, alumni and faculty, so we are excited to see what you have to share!

Once you submit your poem, a panel of judges from the Student & Alumni Engagement department will review each work of art, and we will announce the winner at the end of April. Rules? There are no rules. (Actually, maybe just a couple!) Remember your audience and please limit your creativity to no more than one page.

The submission deadline is April 25, 2016. Please send all submissions to Winners will receive a CSU Knight T-shirt, a CSU coffee mug, and a CSU alumni license plate frame.
