Hi everyone! I just found a new contest that looks really interesting. Nicollet Mall is looking for theme based poems of 30 words or less which will be placed on signs between Washington and 4th Street in downtown Minneapolis. There are cash prizes, too. Make sure you use one of the required (themed) words they have on the website. Doesn’t this sound like a fun project? My hometown library did something similar. Five poems were selected and imprinted on the sidewalk next to the newly remodeled library. I’ll be reading my poem (an untitled haiku) tomorrow at 1 p.m. at the Pine City library. For those of you who can’t make it to the library, here’s my poem: Days flutter past like/the pages of an empty/book read by the wind
And here’s the link to the contest: http://www.minneapolisdid.com/page/show/341959-the-future-of-nicollet-mall-poetry-contest Good Luck!
