The month of March is when Whatcom County poetry writers can submit a poem to the Sue C. Boynton Poetry Contest.
The free annual contest chooses 25 winners. Ten Walk Award winners have their poem displayed on plaques at Bellingham Public Library. Those and 15 Merit Award winners also have their poems displayed on Whatcom Transportation Authority buses.
Poems must meet size criteria to fit the plaques, so review the guidelines at http://boyntonpoetrycontest.wordpress.com.
Winners are invited to read their poems at a free awards ceremony May 17 at Bellingham Cruise Terminal.
Poems can be mailed to Poetry Contest, P.O. Box 1192, Bellingham, WA 98227; or emailed to BoyntonPoetryContest@hotmail.com (Word document preferred).
Poems also can be delivered to Mindport Exhibits, 210 W. Holly St., and to Terra Organic & Natural Foods, 1530 Cornwall Ave.
