Bugle poetry contest deadline is March 4

Poets: It’s time to sharpen your pencils and start thinking about the sixth annual Park Bugle poetry contest.

The deadline for submissions is Friday, March 4.

The top three winning entrees will be published in the April issue of the Bugle in honor of National Poetry Month. All submissions will be posted on the Bugle website.

This year’s prompt is privilege.

Here are the contest particulars:

• Poems can take any form you choose.

• The contest is limited to one submission per person and it must be received by March 4.

• The word privilege does not have to appear in your poem. Use the word as inspiration to go in any direction it takes you.

•  The contest is open to all Bugle readers. Current Bugle employees and Park Press board members and their families are not eligible to enter.

Send poems to Editor, P.O. Box 8126, St. Paul, MN 55108, or to editor@parkbugle.org. The poems will be judged anonymously by a local poet. First place wins a gift certificate to a local business.
