Entries for Poetry in Public 2018 now being accepted

It’s time once again for local writers to submit poems for consideration in the 16th annual Poetry in Public Program, sponsored by the Iowa City Public Art Program. Writers of all ages, levels of writing ability and experience, are encouraged to submit entries to the contest. 

A panel of local judges will review entries and then select poems that will be displayed throughout the community and on local and literary websites. The winning poems will be on display on Iowa City buses, at the Iowa City Public Library and the Robert A. Lee Recreation Center from May through the fall. Selected poets will also have the opportunity to read their poem during the Iowa Arts Festival in June. 

The program was initiated in 2002 to celebrate, promote and nurture the rich writing culture that exists in Iowa City.

For more information, the Submission Form and other details,  visit www.icgov.org/pip, call 319-356-5237 or e-mail marcia-bollinger@iowa-city.org.
