We are rapidly gearing up for the second edition of The Alexander Muse, the teen art and literary magazine! Many teens have already turned in art and poetry works.
Items can be given to me at the library or to teachers, Beth Duncan or Robbin Isenhour Stewart, at the high school. The contest is open to all high school teens in Alexander County - ACHS, area private schools, home schooled, or alternative school students.
Teens may enter as many items in art (pen and ink, paintings, pencil, charcoal), poetry (any style), or prose (short stories) as they wish. Find your inner Twain, Frost, or Escher and create!
You can only win in one category. You must get all entries in by Tuesday, March 1, 2011. There will be some awesome prizes (once we figure them out)! Hey, this is a process, folks!
I am very excited to say that North Carolina Poet Laureate, Cathy Smith Bowers, will be one of the poetry judges! What an honor to have her aboard.
Have a wonderful weekend and come see me at the library!
