All Day EventTeen Poetry Contest Ends

Eco-Poetry is poetry that address or explore our relationship to nature – ecology is the study of how organisms are connected to one another, and eco-poetry uses language (and image and metaphor) to explore what it means to be a person in relationship to the natural world – what are our responsibilities? How are we dependent on one another?

But eco-poetry doesn’t have to focus on nice, beautiful fields – it could be about the crows that circle your corner, about your neighbor’s overgrown yard, about the smell of Lake Merritt when the geese are in residence – it’s up to you and your creative eye to notice the ways we relate to nature!

• We will accept submissions from Thursday, April 1, 2021 to Monday, April 19, 2021.
• You are welcome to submit up to three entries. Please include ONE POEM per entry.
• Poems may be up to 30 lines and should in some way connect to our theme (ecology and nature).
• Open to teens in grades 6-12; teens do not need to be San Leandro residents, but do need to be able to come to the library to claim their prize.
• Finalists will be published on our Instagram (@TeenCornerSLPL) and we will invite public voting on the final winner. The winner will receive a Sustainability Starter Pack. All finalists will receive a certificate of recognition.
• We will have a virtual Poetry Reception on Thursday, April 29th
