Festival of Listening

On Mar. 13th, the RCAH Center for Poetry is partnering with MSU’s Arts Living-Learning Community (ALLC) to present an evening of untranslated poetry for the first time since 2020.

The Festival of Listening offers the opportunity to share and enjoy poetry in any language that is not English. In past years, participants have recited poems in all different languages such as Spanish, Italian, French, Arabic, Russian, Hausa, Chinese, Farsi, Urdu, Bamanankan, Occitan, Wolof, Elvish, and Spanglish.

Anyone can register to attend or recite a poem through this link.
