Lend me your ear and look at what’s here! It’s the NYPL’s first ever National Poetry Contest on Twitter! To enter, register and agree to the contest rules, follow @NYPL on Twitter, and submit three poetic Tweets in English as public posts on your Twitter stream between March 1 and 10, 2013. Three poetic Tweets constitute one entry and each poem must contain the @NYPL Twitter handle. Two of the poems can cover any topic you choose, but at least one of the three poems needs to be about libraries, books, reading, or New York City. All entries must be original, unpublished, and must not have won any award. Entrants may submit one entry per day. You can read about the prizes, rules and regulations here.
