The 16th Annual Voices of Lincoln Poetry Contest officially begins in April, as part of the celebration of National Poetry Month. The theme of this year’s contest is “Seeing Is Believing Through Poetry.” There are five new categories: “What Do I See When I Look In The Mirror?” “I See You In My Dreams” “You Should Have Seen What I Saw Today” “I See A World With Many Opportunities” “See If I Can Make You Laugh.” Poets may submit a maximum of three poems, no more than one in each of three of the five contest categories.
Everyone is encouraged to enter the contest. There is no entry fee. Poets do not have to live in Lincoln, CA, to be eligible. Young Poets, 18-years of age or under, are encouraged to submit poems and will compete in a special “Young Poets” category.
