About this event:

Created by Poe Baltimore

Stay tuned…the jurying process of the Faux-Poe contest entries is happening. We’ll announce the winners shortly…
Great news! Even though National Poetry Month ends today, we’re extending our FAUX-POE deadline to 11:59pm, May 11.
It’s been thrilling to see your entries (representing ALL ages.). Yet given recent tumult in many Baltimore communities, we’ve decided to give everyone an opportunity to submit one example of their best “FAUX-POEm”
After you email your poem to us, feel free to post a copy at our Facebook page [the link is on our homepage…and otherwise, due to Facebook metrics, it’s nearly impossible to find unless you Google “Poe Baltimore Facebook”]  and the. encourage your friends to check it out, as the poet gleaning the most “likes” will nab the enviable FB “Audience Award.”
(A reminder: some of our most devoted fans are young students, so please– following Poe’s example — be sure your work reflects his sense of passionate and chilling (yet restrained) style, voice, and language.)
