Yankton Art House Gallery Hosting Valentine's Day Poetry Competition
Jake Kidney, director of The Art House Gallery in Yankton, is putting together a poetry reading competition. The prizes won't be large (1st prize is a free night at the Best Western Kelly Inn in Yankton), and he's interested in newbie writers, especially high school students and college students.
The event is on Valentines Day. Entries are $5 a person and they're due by Feb 12. Late entries will be accepted up until the reading starts, but their entry fee will be $10.
He's not looking for slam stuff so much as sonnets and other love poems. He'd like the event to be more of a celebration of Valentine's Day.
