❉ The 2017 Voices of Lincoln Poetry Contest ❉
And To Spread The Word To Both Adult And Young Poets
April is National Poetry Month and the time to kick off the 2017 Voices of Lincoln Poetry Contest.
As entrants in the 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and/or 2016 Voices of Lincoln Poetry Contest, I would like to take this opportunity to invite you to enter the 2017 contest. As coordinator of the contest the past eight years, I had the opportunity to read and enjoy all the wonderful poems entered. Since I was not a judge, I was not put in the difficult position of deciding which ones should place in the contest.
Now we have entered a new year and it is time for a new contest. All contest categories are different and interesting and will challenge your creativity and imagination. I encourage you to submit your poetry again this year.
Attached, please find both the “Rules and Entry Form” and the “Contest Flyer.”
I look forward to receiving your entries for this year’s contest.
Coordinator, 2017 Voices of Lincoln Poetry Contest
