Submission Deadline September 7th for Stupey Cabin History Poetry Contest
The Highland Park Historical Society is having a special event on Saturday, September 16, 2017 from 4 - 7PM Celebrating the 170th anniversary of The Stupey Cabin. The occasion seeks to evoke the spirit of the historic times so the entertainment emphasis is on live performance - music, poetry, story telling. The HP Historical Society has invited Highland Park Poetry to share poetry about the Stupey Cabin, or some aspect of its history or the people connected to it.
Highland Park Poetry offers a cash prize contest ($25/1st Place, $15/2nd Place, $10/3rd Place). DEADLINE is September 7th. You must be present to read at the September 16 event (or provide a proxy to perform for you).
No entry form or reading fee required. No line limit. Send poem submissions as .doc or .pdf attachments or text in the body of an email to firstname.lastname@example.org before midnight on September 7th.
For information about the Stupey Cabin, contact Archivist Nancy Webster at the Highland Park Public Library, 847.432.0216 x138.
