April is National Poetry Month and the Conway Public Library is holding their annual poetry contest! The deadline for a poetry submission is April 27, 2015 by 8:00 p.m. Judges will have a week to review and decide upon winners by age. There will be one winner and one runner up in each category, judged by a group of local volunteer judges with literary knowledge or expertise. Poems will be judged (age appropriately) on form, word usage, poetic elements, language conventions, effort, and illustration is always a wonderful addition.
Prizes are gift certificates or products donated by local businesses. Winners will be notified by telephone before May 3rd. Winners may choose to read their works or have an adult read instead at our poetry celebration on Monday, May 4th at 6:00 p.m. Refreshments will be provided. We will be inviting Valley Vision to film the event. For more information please call 447-5552.
