I’m looking forward to reading poems for this contest! I’ll serve as poetry juror for The 45th annual Westmoreland Arts and Heritage Festival Poetry and Short Story Contest.
If you’re interested (I hope so!) mark you calendar. Submissions are open through January 18, 2019 (postmark deadline).
Winners in both poetry and short story categories receive a Westmoreland Award: $200 plus an invitation to read their works onstage. Cash prizes and stage invitations go to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place poems and stories too.
The Westmoreland Arts and Heritage Festival takes place July 4, 5, 6, & 7, 2019, with performing arts, diverse cultural events, foods from many traditions, fine arts, music and crafts. Latrobe, location of the festival site, is southwest of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
Here’s more information & a link to download an entry form.
It’s the new year, so start sending out your poems!
