Versifying contest to mark poetry month

The Leddy Library is holding a poetry contest to celebrate National Poetry Month. Enter by April 15 to win a prize donated by Black Moss Press and Biblioasis.

Competitors may share their original poems created using one of two methods:

  • Push Pin Poetry — rearrange the words on the library’s main-floor bulletin board
  • Book Spine Poetry — stack up a pile of books using the titles on the spines

Take a picture of your poem and share it with @LeddyLibrary on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram using the hashtag #LeddyPoetry. Make sure your post is public so judges can see it.

Also, librarians believe “poetry just wants to be free” so check around the Leddy to find boxes of Free Verse to take home what might be your next favourite poem.

Direct questions about the contest to co-op librarian Tanis Schumilas at tschumil@uwindsor.ca.
