With two categories (youth & adult) and a spread in our issue dedicated to the winners, this is a great opportunity for our community to celebrate the excellent work of our local word artists during National Poetry Month.
First, second and third place winners will be showcased in the April 7th Issue of Worcester Mag.
Winners will be invited to read their winning entries during a Worcester Mag sponsored live showcase event at the WCUW 91.3 FM’s Front Room on April 22.
