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.
  • Winners receive a certificate and book.
