Poetry lovers are invited to submit unpublished, original poems for the Resort Municipality of Whistler’s (RMOW) annual Poet’s Pause poetry competition.
From first-time writers to seasoned poets, everyone is welcome to submit a poem for this year’s competition.
Winning poems will be displayed at the Poet’s Pause sculpture sites in Alta Lake Park – specifically the large metal chimes art piece titled Lost in Sound at the north part of the park, and the giant Adirondack chairs titled Lakeside Couple in the south end of the park.
The winning poems will receive a prize of $200 each and be read at the April 11, 2017 council meeting as part of National Poetry Month.
The public can submit poems for one or both display sites. Poems should respond to the themes of the two sculpture sites: the theme for the large metal chimes is listening, and the theme for the giant Adirondack chairs is togetherness. Poems can be of any type and format and should be no longer than 240 words.
The deadline for submissions is Thursday, March 16, 2017.
To submit a poem, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
