“Love Letters”: The Second Annual Common Good Books Poetry Contest

Garrison Keillor, proprietor of Common Good Books in St Paul, Minnesota, is sponsoring a poetry contest, and he’s putting up some serious money in support of good verse. First prize in “Love Letters”: The Second Annual Common Good Books Poetry Contest is $1000.00; four $250.00 runner-up prizes will be awarded at the discretion of the judges.

This year’s judges are Garrison Keillor, Tom Hennen (author of Darkness Sticks to Everything: New and Collected Poems), and Patricia Hampl (author of Woman before an Aquarium and Resort and Other Poems).

To enter, just craft a paean to your favorite person, place, or thing. Pour your love onto the page, shape it well, and mail your love letter to Common Good Books before April 15. Fame and fortune could be yours.
