A Selective Guide to the Arts in Los Angeles

UCLA Live presents an evening with two of America’s premier poets, former Poets Laureate Billy Collins and Kay Ryan, appearing at Royce Hall Saturday, April 23, at 8 p.m.

In conjunction with the event and tied to National Poetry Month, UCLA Live is holding a poetry-writing competition. Collins and Ryan will judge the winners from selected finalists and read the winning entry from the stage on the night of the show. The first prize winner will receive a pair of tickets to the event and a $100 gift certificate to Book Soup. Second and third prizes will be awarded. Submissions are being accepted now through midnight April 18 at http://www.uclalive.org/artinaction.
