Vox, the school’s literary magazine, runs a biannual event known as Poetry Night at the Fickle Pickle. It is a well-loved and established event and continually brings together a large portion of our school population. It also is used as a fundraising event for the literary magazine. Performers, as well as the audience, were encouraged to donate to the magazine.

The student body often sees this event as a way to see what their peers can perform.  “I enjoy listening to poetry. I find it very emotional.” said Liza Waldron, junior.  Students use poetry night as an opportunity to try new things. Many write their own poetry and others recite poetry in different languages. “I take French and I wanted to recite a poem in French,” said Maisha Tasnim, junior, who performed “Le pont mirabeau,” which was one of the two French poems that night.

While many students perform personal poems or poems by their favorite poets, others prefer a more casual and comical route by reciting the lyrics of well known songs. Poetry night is communal and made to show the creativity of Roswell’s student body. Poetry isn’t the only thing performed during this event. Students also have the freedom to perform musical acts. Some students brought their instruments to play to accompany their singing. Poetry night was certainly a rousing success, with the student body filling the Fickle Pickle’s tent, where the event took place. It will certainly be continued in years to come.
