Poetry Writing Contest
Help us celebrate National Poetry Month and National Library Week by joining in Orrville Public Library’s Poetry Contest. Here’s how it works:
- Write your own original poem.
- Each entrant may submit up to three poems.
- On the back of each poem, include name and phone number.
- Please avoid profanity and inappropriate references.
- Entries will not be returned.
- Submissions are due at the Reference Desk by Thursday, April 11, 2013, at 5:00 p.m.
- A panel of judges will select the top entries. Our guest judge Denise Rehm, Orrville Schools’ Librarian, will select 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners.
- Winners will be announced Thursday, April 18, at 6:00 p.m., at a reception at the library. Light refreshments will be provided.
- Entrants may opt to read their poems at the reception.
