Call to Santa Clara county residents:
Submit your best poem, 50 words or less, to Poetry on the Move that in some way relates to the contest theme, “Invention.” I’m looking for poems that celebrate who we are and what we do in Silicon Valley. Write about “Invention” as a subject or a theme, or think of your poem as an invention. In it, capture the spirit of “making new” that shapes our county. Winning poems will be placed in light rail and buses throughout the county in April for National Poetry Month.
Submissions of your original poem can be made online only through the submission manager. Click HERE or in the sidebar “Poetry on the Move” link for further detail and complete submission guidelines. Find poems that feature the required word length under the “Sample Poems” page in the blog header.
Contest closes January 31.
