Are you the next Robert Frost? Maxine Kumin? Donald Hall? Shel Silverstein? The library invites you to submit your work for our 6th Annual Poetry Contest. Anyone who writes poetry may submit up to three original, previously unpublished poems. First, second, and third place prizes will be awarded in the Adult (age 19 and up), Teen (ages 13-18) and Youth (through age 12) categories, as well as special recognition for Merrimack residents in each group.
Complete rules and entry forms are available at the Circulation Desk and on the library's website. The deadline for entries is Friday, March 30. Participants and poetry lovers are invited to attend the Awards Night on Monday, April 30, at 6:30 p.m. where winners will be announced and all entrants will have the opportunity to read from their work.
