From the good folks at JMRL: Do you love to write poetry? The Jefferson-Madison Regional Library will hold its annual teen poetry contest from October 1 to October 27. Contest forms and guidelines are available at each branch library and online at www.jmrl.org/teens. Teens ages 12 to 18 can submit only one poem they have written.
Three winners will be chosen, prizes will be awarded, and the winners will be eligible for entry in the annual teen poetry contest sponsored by the Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA) library journal.
Children’s author Cathy May will be one of several judges. Submission deadline is October 27. Winners will be notified by mid-November.
