Poetry out loud is an annual competition among readers of poems. I've judged my city's HS competition for several years. This year the guy who won locally just won the regional and will go to the state competition. Last year out pick ended up 2nd in the national competition. Here's our guy at the regionals.

Heard this today on Talk of the Nation. It is the last segment about concise poetry.

Brevity is the soul of wit. But there's room for the epic as well.
