Hey creative writers! Join us this Friday, April 26th at 6:00pm for this year’s PAGE ONE event!
Page One is a literary performance competition held in the AAU Library where students can win cash prizes and recognition for their exceptionally creative submissions! Also, Liberal Arts instructors will be giving their students extra credit for participation. Cash prizes are $100 for first place in each category and $50 for second place in each category. There will also be free snacks and beverages!
The event works like this… Students write one page or the equivalent of 5 minutes spoken (written before the day of the event) in one of three categories: Poetry/Spoken Word, Fiction, and Creative Non-Fiction. (No musical performances are allowed.) A panel of judges (consisting of Liberal Arts instructors) will evaluate performances based on the following criteria: originality, language, presentation and clarity of subject. After all the presentations, votes will be tallied, winners announced, and prize money will be given out to the first and second place finishers in each category.
Ten people may sign up for each category, and sign-up sheets are available now in the Library at the circulation desk. BE SURE TO SIGN UP BEFORE 6pm ON FRIDAY!!
Page One will take place on Friday, April 26th from 6:00pm to 9:00pm in the AAU Library. That’s on the 6th floor of the 180 New Montgomery St. building.
