Fame and Glory

Do you have what it takes to become the first ever Minden Poet Laureate? If you believe ... if you truly believe ... that this title belongs to you, here's how to claim it --

Send us your poem* and the very modest entry fee of $10CDN**.  We'll post your poem on this web site, print it in the SCORE! program and then let people from around the world cast their votes. The winner will be announced at one minute past midnight EST July 21, 2011. The winning poem will be published by TheRightEyedDeer Press (along with an editor's selection of other entries and work from Haliburton County poets) in the first annual SCORE! anthology (available in the fall of 2011).


Here's the fine print:

*poetry must be the original work of the entrant; previously published work is acceptable BUT you better make sure you own the rights 'cause we don't want any trouble, hear?

You don't have to live here to send an entry. You don't even have to have ever heard of Minden, ON before ... we love everyone.


Poems should be no longer than 40 lines (blank lines excluded).


Entries can be sent via email to scoreatthedominion (at) gmail (dot) com

**entry fee may be paid via PayPal -- there's a 'DONATE' button for this purpose at the very bottom of our home page.

All proceeds go to help support the continued activities of the Arts Council~Haliburton Highlands Artists in the Schools program.
