2017 Sidewalk Poetry Kick-off
Submitted by Bonnie Jean Flom on Mon, 01/16/2017 - 2:05am
Join us in the Atrium of the Northfield Public Library on Saturday, January 28th at 2 pm as we honor the winning poets of 2016 and Kick-off the 2017 Sidewalk Poetry Contest. Bring a brief poem to share - one of your own or a favorite of another poet - or just come to listen. Northfield's Poet Laureate, Rob Hardy, will be on hand to mark the start of this year's competition. Contest rules can be found on the Arts and Culture Commission page of the City website. Poems may be submitted to the contest from Wednesday, February 1st through Tuesday, February 28th, at 8 pm at the Library. Winners will be announced in April - National Poetry Month.
This project is a partnership with the Friends and Foundation of the Northfield Public Library, the Northfield Public Library, and the City of Northfield. This activity is funded by the Southeastern Minnesota Arts Council (SEMAC) through the arts and culture heritage fund as appropriated by the Minnesota State Legislature with money from the vote of the people of Minnesota on November 4, 2008.
