Help the Retriever Poets raise $2,800 to send 8 of our talented poets to the College Unions Poetry Slam Invitational (CUPSI) which is being held every year in a different state. In the spring of 2019, it is being hosted in Houston, Texas, at the University of Houston.
-The Retriever Poets, is UMBC's first and only Poetry club! We are dedicated to creating a safe and tolerant space for poets and creatives in UMBC to express themselves.
-The club was created in the Spring semester of 2018 and ever since then, we've been trying to build a community of poets in UMBC
-We perform in school and local Open Mics and Slams, but once a year we go to a national Poetry Slam Competition (CUPSI)
-In our first few months of being created, 8 of our poets auditioned and got chosen to compete in the CUPSI
-At this National Poetry Slam, poets from schools all over the country get the chance to showcase their talents, learn from one another, network, and attend workshops to improve their art!
