The event creator says
Time for the 2015 Hessler Street Fair Poetry Contest!

Submit up to 5 original poems to hesslerpoetry@crisischronicles.com. Please include your name, street address, city, state, zip code, and telephone number with your submission. (No snail mail entries, please.) Word docx preferred. Otherwise, in the body of the email is acceptable.

Entry deadline is April 20th, 2015. We will let you know by April 30th if your work is accepted for the anthology. On Wednesday May 13th, 2015 at 7pm, a qualifying round of readings by those whose poems have been selected will be held during the book's release at Mac's Backs Books on Coventry. About 20 minutes after all poets have read, prize winners will be announced and prizes will be handed out.

1st Prize $100
2nd Prize $50
3rd Prize $25

Open to ages 14 and up.

Poets published in the book may purchase one contributor's copy of the 2015 Hessler Street Fair Poetry Anthology the evening of the release at Mac's (or from the Hessler Street Fair Booth at Hessler Rd. & Hessler Ct. during the days of the 2015 Fair) for half price. Full price will be charged for additional copies.

If you have won in the last three years, you are encouraged to submit to the anthology but will not be eligible to win a prize.

Prize winners are also expected to read on the designated day (May 16th or 17th) during the Hessler Street Fair (http://hesslerstreetfair.org).

Poetry has always been an integral part of the Hessler Street Fair, sometimes having its own stage on the street and sometimes combining with music on the main stage, but always doing something interesting. The top three winners will be given the opportunity to read from the stage at the Hessler Street Fair, simulcast on live radio and the web, during the Fair. Poetry read on air must not include any words designated to be obscene language as stated by the U.S. Federal Communications Commission.

Once again, all entries should be emailed (no snail mail entries please) to: hesslerpoetry@crisischronicles.com. Happy writing!
