Submit up to five original poems by the deadline of April 14th, 2012 (Shorter poems of one page or less will be favored.) The finalists will be printed in the Hessler Street Fair poetry book, and get a chance to read their poems on the evening of Wednesday, May 9th, at 7pm at Mac’s Backs Books on Coventry. The first, second, and third place winners will then read on May 20th at the Hessler Street Fair.
Best thing about it? No entry fee, and cash prizes! Win everlasting fame (well, locally, anyway). Check the full rules at the Hessler Street Fair Poetry Contest page.
