Mooresville Public Library to Offer Poetry Competition
During the months of April and May, Mooresville Public Library will be conducting a poetry competition. Interested participants must be at least 13-years-old. The first part of the competition is a poetry book cover contest that will be held from Monday, April 2 through Monday, April 30. Interested participants should pick up an application, and return it upon completion, along with your original book cover design to the adult services reference desk, located on the library’s main floor.
Throughout the month of April, interested participants will have the opportunity to attend various workshops that focus on different genres of poetry. The workshops will be held on Wednesday evenings in April from 6:30PM-8:30PM at the Mooresville Public Library. The schedule is as follows:
Wednesday, 4/4, Free Verse
Wednesday, 4/11, Sonnets
Wednesday, 4/18, Rhyme Scheme
And Wednesday, 4/25, Free Verse Part II
These workshops will give those interested the opportunity to explore and write these different genres of poetry. No experience is necessary, and registration is not required. Interested participants are not required to attend all sessions; you can pick and choose which ones you want to attend.
During the month of May, interested participants can pick up an application, and submit the application, along with your completed poem to the adult services reference desk, located on the library’s main floor. Selected poems will be compiled into a poetry anthology. Visa gift cards will be awarded for first, second, and third place. Winners will also be given a copy of the poetry anthology and given an invitation to the Mooresville Public Library’s Local Author Showcase to be held on Saturday, July 28. Copies of the poetry anthology will be circulated throughout the library and available for the public to check out. Questions?
