Hessler Street Fair Poetry Contest!

The Hessler Street Fair has just announced their 2012 Hessler Street fair poetry contest!

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.

And, don't forget to mark your calendar for the May 9th reading at Mac's, and the Hessler Fair itself the weekend of May 19-20. For more, check out the Hessler Street Fair Facebook page. Or the poetry contest Facebook page.

So - do the e-mail submissions need to be in the body of the e-mail or as attachments - i tried sending a message to the address at the site almost a week ago and got no response.

Feel free to put them in the body of the e-mail unless the formatting is odd, at which point .RTF attachments are fine. If you'd rather attach them anyway, that's cool, too. I'm pretty open about this.
