Belmont is Raining Poetry - Submit a Poem!
Belmont elementary students are invited to submit a poem to Belmont Raining Poetry, a new project celebrating art and safe routes to schools. Five poems will be selected to be temporarily installed on sidewalks using Mass Poetry’s unique formula which is only visible in the rain. Our puddle-tastic spring theme is inspired by e. e. cummings’s poem “In Just-“ – a testimony to childhood and springtime - and by poet-judge, Matthew J. Burgess, author of Enormous Smallness: A Story of E. E. Cummings.
Submit By: Fri., April 14th by 3:00 p.m.
Entry Form: www.BelmontRainingPoetry.com
Need inspiration? Find Matthew’s lesson guide on our site! Winning poems will be announced in late April!
This project is supported by a grant from the Belmont Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency. Contact Organizer: Kate Bowen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
