Our readers are invited to submit poems to the Chronicle’s first poetry contest. Winning entries will be published in our Jan. 15 issue, prior to Martin Luther King Jr. Day. The theme is “solidarity.” Submissions will be accepted in two categories: teens and adults. The winner in each category will receive a $54 gift card to Pinsker’s Books and Judaica, supplied by an anonymous donor. All submissions must be received no later than Dec. 25.
Poems must be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please type “Poetry Contest” in the subject line. The poem must be in a Microsoft Word file. No pdfs or handwritten entries will be accepted.
