Posted in All Education

SELCO and all member libraries encouraged residents who live in the eleven-county SELCO region to submit original poetry to be considered for the 2014 Poetic Strokes & Word Flow regional anthology. Submissions were submitted in late Fall 2013. After the initial deadline, a two qualified panels of judges reviewed all entries in each competition and made the final selections for the anthology.

Poetic Strokes is the regional competition for adults ages 19 and up. Poets were able to submit a maximum of two poems per person. We had 196 poems from 112 unique poets. These individuals represented 29 communities from all 11 counties in the SELCO region. Of those 196, 23 poems were selected for final inclusion in the anthology.

Word Flow is in its second year as the regional competition for youth poets ages 14-18. These individuals were able to submit a one poem maximum. With 111 poems from our youth poets, they represented 21 communities from 8 of our 11 SELCO counties. The final poems included for the anthology this year numbered 28.
