Hi Teen Voices participants and mentors,
I know most of you are amidst the process of working with us on poems for the book, but it never hurts to keep writing.
So in the interest of poetry, I wanted to share a local opportunity with you folks. It’s the Winona Daily News poetry contest, open to submissions now through April 1. The theme this year is the news, so we’re asking local poets like you to respond with a poem to a current event.
Find the contest description and rules here. Winning poems selected by a panel of three judges get published in the Winona Daily News, and all entrants are invited to share their poems at a public reading event at the Book Shelf April 26.
