April is poetry month, and the Richmond Public Library is once again holding its teen poetry contest.
The contest is open to teens aged 12 to 18. This year, the library is welcoming submissions of any form of poetry including written, spoken word, musical lyrics and rap.
Written entries should be no longer than one page, single-spaced. Verbal entries should be no longer than two minutes.
Language used should be clean and respectful. Prizes will be awarded in two age categories, 12 to 15 and 16 to 18. Entries will be judged on their creativity, clarity, originality and the literary merit or message of the piece.
The contest closes April 30. For more information, visit https://rplteenhub.yourlibrary.ca/?page_id=7449
