Whether you are a student, a professional writer or a novice wordsmith, you are encouraged to submit your poem(s) as long as you enjoy writing and live in the Wood Buffalo region.
Fill out the Poetry Submission Form and the Poetry Release Form, submit them to the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo by February 8, 2013.
No limits, no boundaries
There is no limit on the number of words, theme or category for your poem(s) – let your creativity run wild! Poems in any language other than English are also welcome, as long as an English translation is provided.
An external panel of judges will select the poems based on certain predetermined criteria.
Selected poems will be displayed on the Wood Buffalo Transit buses and the cinema screens in Fort McMurray during National Poetry Month in April, on the Municipal website, and throughout our region. Participants will also be invited to the celebration event in early April.
