Teen Poetry Happens For Love and Get In Your Muse Submissions!

How exciting to have TPH @ The Bean happen on Valentine's Day! As you can see from the video, folks got their love words, songs, and art in motion.

We have just one more week to collect submissions for the 3rd edition of The Alexander Muse teen art and literary magazine coming out April 17, 2012. The last day to turn in your poetry, short story prose, art, and photography is Wednesday, February 29, 2012. (Hey! At least this is a Leap Year!)

Photography can be submitted to me digitally at If you have used film, you may turn in your print to The Spilled Bean, Alexander Central High School, or to me at the library.

This contest is open to all Alexander County high school students regardless of where you attend school - ACHS, alternative school, area public schools, boarding schools, or home school.

There are 1st, 2nd, and 3rd prizes in each of the 4 categories. Also, 3 Honorable Mentions will be published in each category.

1st prize in art, poetry, and prose - a $25 gift card for Wal-Mart provided by Wal-Mart of Taylorsville.

The 1st prize for photography will be a classic Pentax 35mm SLR camera donated anonymously to The Alexander Muse! (Cool beans! - Thank you, Anonymous!)

2nd prize in all categories - a $15 gift card to The Spilled Bean provided by the Alexander Friends of the Library (Thank you, Friends! You are so good to us.)

3rd prize in all categories - a $5 gift card to The Spilled Bean provided by The Spilled Bean (You are cool without sayin'! - but I said it anyway!)

Shannon at The Spilled Bean will also give our honorable mentions a free scoop of ice cream. Thank you, Shannon and Brandy of The Spilled Bean, for ALL you do!
