98 young poets in grades K-12 submitted 130 poems to McCollough Branch for our first (annual?) Poetry Month celebration and contest. Subjects ranged from the African Plains to a humble Hoosier mushroom, from love and friendship to the wisdom of starting over. We hope that all those who participated enjoyed writing their poems and will keep on writing.
Everyone is invited to our Poetry Awards Reception on Wednesday, April 29 at 6:30 p.m. Winners of the contest will be announced, prizes awarded, and light refreshments will be served. Anyone who submitted a poem to our contest is invited to read one poem aloud at the reception.
Make plans to celebrate with us on April 29.
