I am excited to share my news….I just learned my poem titled, Magical World of Books, was selected to be part of the 2014-2015 Mankato Poetry Walk! My poem will be printed on a sign posted at Glenwood Ave & Pohl Road.
This is the second year for Mankato Poetry Walk. Over 35 poems will appear in parks and on bike trails through out the Mankato area. I will get to record my poem and then walkers, bikers and other listeners can hear recordings of the poets reading their poems.
The winners range in age from 8 to over 70 and are from Mankato and the surrounding area.
Poems were submitted online and were anonymously judged by well-respected poets, Peter Stein, Bethany Barry and Charmaine Donovan from the League of Minnesota Poets.
The Mankato Poetry Walk and Ride is sponsored by the Southern MN Poets Society, Mayo Clinic Health System, VoyageurWeb and Creative Ad Solutions.
The Cities of Mankato and North Mankato have generously provided the sign posts to display the poems. Without their support, this would not be possible.
