Bugle’s annual poetry contest rides again

April is National Poetry Month and that means it’s time for all you writers out there to think about entering the Park Bugle’s seventh annual poetry contest.

The first-place winner will receive $50 and be published in the April issue of the Bugle. We will also publish the second- and third-place winning entries. All entries will be published online.

Here’s what you need to know:

• The prompt for the 2017 contest is “walls.”

• Poems can take any form you choose.

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

• The contest is limited to one submission per person and it must be received by Friday, March 3.

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. Get out those pens (or pencils or laptops).

On your mark, get set, compose!
