Poetry Contest in May

National Poetry Month - AprilAre you a poet?  April is National Poetry Month, and to celebrate, we are having a poetry contest at Baldwin Boettcher.  The talented winner of each category (children, teens, and adults) will win a $25 gift certificate to a bookstore, so even if you never thought you could write a really good poem, it might be worthwhile to take an hour or more, find a quiet spot, and think on something that inspires you to put pen to paper.  All styles are welcome, but please limit your submission to one page.  If you can, come to the library on Thursday, April 26, at 2 pm, for a discussion of the contest guidelines and other details.

To enter the contest, just bring your poem to the library by the deadline, May 10.  Need some inspiration to get you started?  Come look at our poetry and writing books on display this month in the center of the library.
