Poets, Sharpen Your Pencils: An Arts Alive Poetry Contest!

An Arts Alive Poetry Month Contest!

No doubt about it, spring has sprung in Southern California! The warm sunshine, melodious bird songs and technicolor  flowers could make poets of us all. Maybe that's why April was named National Poetry Month. Here at KUSC, we love to celebrate all forms of great art: from the sonata to the sonnet and we know our listeners are incredibly creative folks. That's why I'm happy to announce that Arts Alive is joining this annual celebration of poetry with a very special contest for you, our listeners.

We want you to write us a poem! There is only one rule. Your poem must incorporate two themes we all hold close to our hearts: Southern California and music. Not bad subject material!

You have until 5PM on April 30th to email your poem to artsalive@kusc.org. Just one poem per person and it needs to be in the body of the email (no attachments please).

We'll post a few of our favorites on the Arts Alive Blog starting Monday, April 29th and I'll pick one to read on Arts Alive on Saturday, May 4th.

Good luck! We can't wait to read your poems.

    I tried to use the e-mail address but it won't work,

    Those delicious tunes without words

    let loose the shackles of my soul.



    Once set free, oh the journeys it makes,

    the dreams it dares, the Hope that opens.



    Light streams in.

    There is not: time, or pain.

    No expectation or disappointment.....

    just me......and the music.
