April Poetry Month Broadside Contest

Thelma Sadoff Center for the Arts (THELMA) announces their first April Poetry Month Broadside Contest during the month of April.

April is National Poetry Month and THELMA is partnering with the Wisconsin Fellowship of Poets to celebrate.

The winning poem will be featured on a limited-edition fine print poster that incorporates the poem and original artwork that will become a part of THELMA’s permanent collection. The winning poet will receive a $50 cash prize, and 10 broadsides.

The contest is open to all Fond du Lac County residents, including enrolled students at colleges and universities located in Fond du Lac County.

Each contestant may submit a single poem of no more than 50 lines. The poem must be the original work of the poet and unpublished.

Send two copies of the submission. One copy should include the poet’s name, address, email and phone number. The second copy should include only the poem with no other identifying information.
