The Sechelt Library is having a poetry contest to help celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday.
You may not get published, but every poem will be publicly displayed at the end of April, poetry month.
The theme is “What living in Canada means to you”, and you can use photos or drawings as part of your submission. The contest is open to all ages, children, youth and adults. Prizes will be awarded for creativity and originality.
The deadline is April 12 at 7pm.
All poems will be laminated and displayed on a “Poetry Line” (think clothes line) strung in the trees around the library, during the week of April 24.
Entries must be accompanied by a registration form, available at the library or the website, sechelt.bc.libraries.coop. Staff
