"For we cannot tarry here, We must march my darlings, We must bear the brunt of danger, We, the youthful sinewy races, all the rest on us depend."  Walt Whitman


Registration

Welcome to the Hyper Bole 2019 Registration Page!  Please note that there are four separate links for registration: one for existing poetry club sponsors, one for students who are not affiliated with a school sponsored poetry club, one for students who are merely interested in partaking in the day's activities as opposed to competing, and one for George Mason University students and faculty.  Please make sure that you click on the appropriate link to complete registration. 

If you have any questions about the registration process, please don't hesitate to contact us at either chelsea@splitthisrock.org or brian@splitthisrock.org.  We look forward to hearing from you!
