Villanova Poetry Society

Junior English major Amanda Eliades invites you to join a new poetry society:

Villanova Poetry Society (VPS) is the newest place for aspiring poets, writers, and readers alike to join a community of people who love poetry! We not only love to write poetry, but we're all connected by an appreciation for the art. No prior experience is needed to come join us. VPS was created so that poets and writers on campus can foster relationships with their peers and better their skills in whatever capacity they wish. It is a place for poets to share their writing with other members in order to publish in one of Villanova's literary magazines or elsewhere, or even just for personal enjoyment. And if reading and/or writing poetry isn't as fun to you as performing poetry is, we plan on attending, watching, and/or performing in poetry slams! Anyone and everyone is welcome to attend.  Our first meeting of the year will be Wednesday, September 16th at 8pm. Contact Amanda Eliades at aeliades@villanova.edu and Eileen Kelly at ekelly28@villanova.edu with any questions. We look forward to meeting you!

Amanda Eliades and fellow English major Kevin Madden
