Putnam poets can enter competition

Friday, January 13, 2012

Wabash Valley Outdoor Sculpture Collection and Arts Illiana announce the 2012 Max Ehrmann Poetry Competition.

Entries must be mailed or delivered by Feb. 24. Competition is open to individuals and students living, working or attending school in Putnam, Clay, Parke, Sullivan, Vermillion or Vigo counties. Cash prizes will be awarded.

Works will be accepted in three categories: Poetry inspired by a work of art; poetry inspired by trees or other green things; and poetry inspired by city life or an urban environment. Up to two poems per contestant will be accepted.

Purpose of the competition is to encourage the writing of new poetry, to foster an interdisciplinary connection between art forms, and to honor Max Ehrmann, a regional poet whose works were inspired by a love for his own community and its people.

For an entry form persons may go to the website wabashvalleyartspaces.com or www.artsilliana.org or call Art Spaces (812-235-2801) or Arts Illiana (812-235-5007).

Completed entry forms and poems should be delivered or mailed to: Art Spaces, 669 Ohio St., Terre Haute, IN 47807.
