Poetry Day

Discover and Explore your Passion – Annual High School Special Event Series

On Wednesday, April 29, 2020, we invite you to embark on a journey of metaphors and similes, creation and exploration, rants and raves, snaps and claps and infinite fun! You will enjoy workshops taught by our acclaimed faculty, an inventive keynote speaker, an awards ceremony to unveil the poetry winners and more. As in years past, students can participate in an open-mic poetry slam that is sure to be electric.

The maximum number of students allowed to participate in Press Day is 15 students per school. The event is free and open to all high school grade levels and is held at Adelphi’s Garden City campus.
