Bugle poetry contest set for March

Poets: It’s time to sharpen your pencils and start thinking about the third annual Park Bugle Poetry Contest. The deadline for submissions is Friday, March 8. The top three winning entrees will be published in the April issue of the Bugle in honor of National Poetry Month. This year’s prompt is transition.

Here are the rules of the contest: Poems can take any form you choose.

The word transition does not have to appear in your poem. You may use that 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.

The contest is limited to one submission per person and it must be received by March 8.

Send poems to Editor, P.O. Box 8126, St. Paul, MN 55108, or to editor@parkbugle.org.

Poems will be judged anonymously by Dave Healy, first- place winner in last year’s contest and the former editor of the Park Bugle. First place wins a gift certificate to Micawber’s Books.

All entries will be posted on the Bugle website, www.parkbugle.org.
