The Northfield Poet Laureate invites writers to submit poetry or prose to Writers Night: Cultivate Your Garden, which will be held on Thursday, April 27, at 7pm, in the Northfield Public Library.

How do you “cultivate your garden”? Do you work to make the world or your community a better place? Do you practice self-care? Do you cultivate your own talents, interests, or hobbies? Do you care for your family and friends? Are you an actual gardener? Interpret the theme as broadly or narrowly as you wish.

Writers are invited to submit up to three poems (no more than three pages) or up to 750 words of prose. Please email your submission in a single Word (.doc or .docx) file, or in the text of an email. Include your name on the submission; it will be removed for blind judging. If you are a student, please include your age and grade.

Submission period: March 1-31, 2017

Email submissions to: poet.laureate@ci.northfield.mn.us

Writers will be notified of the judges’ decision by mid-April. Writers whose work has been chosen will be invited to read their work at Writers Night on Thursday, April 27, 2017, starting at 7pm, in the Northfield Public Library.

 

A grant from the Southeastern Minnesota Arts Council (SEMAC) has provided funding for this project thanks to a legislative appropriation from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund made possible by the voters of Minnesota.
