17 days to go: PEPtBO Poetry Chapbook Contest closes on Hallowe’en

Contest judge and chapbook editor JC Sulzenko reminds Prince Edward County poets and visitors to enter poems in the Prince Edward Point Bird Observatory’s (PEPtBO) poetry contest by the end of this month. PEPtBO monitors and reports on bird migration along the County’s unique South Shore and acts as official caretaker of the IBA (Important Bird and Biodiversity Area.)

On Tuesday at the Picton Branch of the Prince Edward County Public Library, JC previewed what PEPtBO’s chapbook will look like. In January, PEPtBO plans to publish For the Birds, a chapbook of winning poems with photographs taken by local enthusiasts, on its website and to celebrate the chapbook launch with prizes for the top poem in each age category.

JC explains.”It’s a great way to ring in the winter of 2019 by focusing on birds and nature as captured by poetry rooted in the County.” The contest, open to Prince Edward County residents and visitors, closes Oct. 31. For contest details, go to http://peptbo.ca/poetry-contest.php
