Poetry Out Loud!

It was my pleasure to serve as one of the judges at Savannah Arts Academy for their Poetry Out Loud competition. The contestants were all very talented and put on wonderful performances. The Society has made them all honorary members and can't wait to see more of them on the poetry scene.

Trey Dugas won first place with his performance of Carl Sandburg's I am the People - the Mob and the runner up was Jack Wagner with his performance of Shakespeare's Blow Blow, the Winter Wind.

Thank you SAA for letting the society partake in such an awesome expression of poetry here in Savannah and good luck to Trey as he heads on to the State championships - We're behind you 100%.
