February Poetry Challenge

012820-Poetry Challenge

We continue to be thrilled with the responses, both in quantity and quality, to the Poetry Challenge. One of the Advisors who has submitted poetry, Audrey Nagel-Schoonmaker from Antioch Community High School in Antioch, IL, shared that “she writes alongside her students in Creative Writing classes because she wants to foster a writers’ community for all who enjoy the art form.” What wonderful mentorship!

The next deadline for the Poetry Challenge is February 15 and the theme is “Dreamer.” At the upcoming meeting of the Advisory Council in March, decisions will be made concerning the type of “awards” to be given to the “best” poets of the year. Look for upcoming announcements!
