Poetry Slam Competition

Two poets will be selected from the DCE community members who submit original poems of encouragement and positive action to make the world a better place.  Poetry readers will be selected from a panel of experts and be awarded a one-course tuition waiver to the Harvard Extension School and will perform their poems during the live event.

Our poetry contest closed on Sunday, April 4. After a thorough round of review by our panel of judges, we are delighted to announce that two poets have been selected from the DCE community members. They will perform their poems during the live event on April 22. To see the winners and hear their live poetry readings, be sure to tune in on April 22.

All entries will be posted on a host website so members of our community can view them.
