Powells.com celebrates National Poetry Month with an invitation to write a poem of your very own. Before midnight, April 30, 2008, submit an original poem--under 20 lines and in some way about Portland, Oregon--to firstname.lastname@example.org for a chance to win 26 books of poetry (from small press poets to contemporary prizewinners to classics) and a handy Powell's rucksack.
The poetry lovers at Powell's will choose the winning poem based on factors including style, originality, creativity, and artistic quality. All entrants will receive Powell's upcoming monthly poetry newsletter. Go to www.powells.com/poetrycontest.html for full rules and regulations.
