Superdooper Superhero Poetry Contest

Write now.

Local Poets Guild is sponsoring a poetry competition in conjunction with 516 ARTS and their exhibition: Superheroes: Icons of Good, Evil & Everything in Between which opens Saturday, October 1, 6-8pm. Hosts Hakim Bellamy, Gary Jackson, and Lisa Gill correlated five superheroes with different categories of poetry and invite ALBUQUERQUE-AREA POETS to submit poems on the themes (listed below) to localpoetsguild@yahoo.com or lisa@516arts.org by October 1st at 5 pm. The prizes will be fantabulous and perhaps comix-al and include participation in a costumes-encouraged 516 WORDS: Superheroes Poetry, which will take place on Halloween weekend.
