Call for High School Student Poetry
The Wisconsin Fellowship of Poets, organizer of an annual student poetry contest, joins forces with the Woodson Art Museum, inviting high school students to participate in a statewide ekphrastic poetry competition. Students will write and submit poems inspired by artwork images from the Woodson Art Museum’s collection; see artwork images below. Entries accepted October 1 through January 15, 2023. An installation of the winning poems and collection artworks will follow during April’s National Poetry Month. For additional information and entry guidelines, check the Wisconsin Fellowship of Poets student contests webpage: www.wfop.org/student-contests.
