WaxPrint Poetry Contest
For Middle and High School Ages hosted by the Teen Advisory Board at Orange County Public Library, 137 W. Margaret Lane in Hillsborough, NC. For more information or help submitting your work, contact Miss Kafi at kallah@orangecountync.gov or 919.245.2536.
Purpose
"WaxPrint" is a zine put together by Orange County Public Library’s Teen Advisory Board (TAB). It is a compilation of art and writing submissions by middle and high school age people who live in and around Orange County, NC. In addition to producing "WaxPrint," TAB is also working with Dee Stribling, Hillsborough's Poet Laureate, to open poetry programming at the Library up to a wider audience, including teens and tweens. To do that, TAB is seeking original works of poetry from middle and high school age youth to publish in WaxPrint and have recited at a poetry reading in May hosted by Dee.
Prizes
All submissions for this contest will be considered for publication in WaxPrint. Five works will be selected as first through fifth place winners of additional prizes, including tickets for Animazement, which takes place May 23 - May 26 at the Raleigh Convention Center, for the first place winner. Winning authors will also have the opportunity to recite their works at poetry reading hosted by Dee Stribling at the Library in Hillsborough on Wednesday, May 15th from 6-7pm.
