The Common Good Amateur Love Poem Contest
Garrison Keillor and Common Good Books are pleased to announce the first annual “Common Good Amateur Love Poem Contest." Unpublished poets (ie, those who have not yet published a book of poetry) are invited to submit poems poems of love or praise. Entries may be up to 14 lines or 200 words long. Entries are due by March 18. Mail poems to firstname.lastname@example.org. Limit one entry per person.
Finalists will be announced April 1, the start of Poetry Month. We will display copies of the poems in the store, and customers can vote for their favorites through the first two weeks of April. We'll announce the winner at our big poetry event--April 21, in the Weyerhaeuser Chapel. Copies of the winning poem will be printed and made available at Common Good Books. We'll also publish the poem in our newsletter.
