POETRY NEWS FROM ALL OVER-
THE DOYLESTOWN, PA, MAIN STREET VOICES POETRY CONTEST IS OPEN FOR BUCKS COUNTY, PA RESIDENTS ONLY, STUDENT AND ADULT.
This is the second year for the Main Street Voices Poetry contest. The response to our first year of the contest in 2015 was terrific; we had over 175 entries in total from both students and adults.
I’m on the planning board for the contest, the judge for grades 6-8 and 9-12, and the MC for the reading.
Melanie Eyth is the judge for grades 1-2 and 3-5. Postmark deadline for entries is Thursday, April 14. All winners receive monetary prizes. Students enter one poem.
Judges for the adult part of the contest are preliminary judge, Brian Lutz, and final judge, Julie Cooper-Fratrick, both award-winning poets. Adults enter three poems.
The contest is judged anonymously.
