New York City Hosts Twitter Poetry Contest

twitter304In celebration of National Poetry Month, New York City is once again hosting a Twitter poetry contest.

To enter, all poets must include the #NYCPoetweet hashtag in their tweets. All participants must adhere to this rule: “keep it clean and to one tweet.”

According to silive.com, “the best tweets posted before April 8 will be considered for publication in Metro New York on April 24, or ‘Poem in Your Pocket Day.’” First Lady Chirlane McCray, poet and wife to Mayor Bill de Blasio, will serve as one of the judges. Follow this link to learn more details about the contest and view last year’s winning poems.
