|Entries for Poetry in Public 2017 now being accepted|
It’s time once again for local writers to submit poems for consideration in the 15th annual Poetry in Public Program, sponsored by the City of Iowa City Public Art Program. Writers of all ages and levels of writing ability are encouraged to submit entries to the contest, which is sponsored by the City of Iowa City Public Art Program. The program was initiated in 2002 to celebrate, promote and nurture the rich writing culture that exists in Iowa City.
A panel of judges will review all entries and then select poems to be displayed throughout the Iowa City community and on local and literary websites. The winning poems will be on display from National Poetry Month in April through the fall. Selected poets will also have the opportunity to read their poem during the City’s Iowa Arts Festival in June.
Rules for the competition are as follows:
Submission forms and other program details are available at www.icgov.org/pip. Entries should be accompanied by a 2017 Poetry in Public submission form and turned in by 5 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 3, 2017 to firstname.lastname@example.org
