We’re helping to spread the word about The Enoch Pratt Free Library’s free poetry competition.
The deadline for submission is February 21. The winning poem will be published in the Little Patuxent Review, dramatically enlarged and illustrated for display during National Poetry Month in a Central Library show window, and featured in a reading at the CityLit Festival.
For details, please visit the Enoch Pratt Free Library website.
And, mark your calendars for a special Little Patuxent Review event on Sunday, March 3, at 7:30 P.M. at The Writer's Center. We’ll feature a reading and discussion with poet Truth Thomas and Little Patuxent Review editor Laura Shovan. Thomas is guest editor for the winter 2012 Social Justice issue. He and Shovan will lead a discussion on the various ways literature can facilitate understanding and change. The program will include poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction readings by authors published in the journal.
