Do you love to write poetry? The Jefferson-Madison Regional Library will have its annual teen poetry contest from Oct. 1 to Oct. 27. Contest forms and guidelines are available at each branch library and online at www.jmrl.org/teens. Teens age 12 through 18 can submit only one poem they have written.
Three winners will be chosen, prizes will be awarded, and the winners will be eligible for entry in the annual teen poetry contest sponsored by the Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA) library journal.
Children’s author Cathy May will be one of several judges. Submission deadline is Oct. 27. Winners will be notified by mid-November.
