Poetry in (Fast) Motion: Seward County Community College Hosts Contest —Deadline 3/10

Poets of the High Plains, get your pens ready! Seward County Community College’s English department is accepting entries for its annual poetry contest, and the deadline is 12:00 a.m. CT on WEDNESDAY, March 10th! I caught up with Dr. Lori Muntz, English instructor at SCCC, and student poet Dulce Perez. They shared more info about the contest, it’s history, and we even got a poem. Submit your work via the online form, and please share this information with writers that you know.

The school is based in Liberal, Kansas, and they’re hoping to hear from poets in the neighboring areas. “The boundaries of the area from which we’d like to receive submissions include: Pueblo, Colorado; Raton, New Mexico; Dumas, Texas; Woodward, Oklahoma; and Larned, Kansas. More about the contest rules can be found here. There are prizes! Listen to the full interview on the link below for the details on that; they’re listed at the very end of the audio clip.
