2017 Poetry Omnibus winners announced

Ceann Murphy, the Poetry Omnibus coordinator sends this:

Thanks to everyone who participated in the 2016 Poetry OmniBus. We had an amazing response. The judges had a very difficult job to select 32 poems out of the 85 poems submitted. I encourage everyone to participate in the 2017 contest, which will open up in November of 2017.

Everyone is welcome to join us for the reading celebration at the Mendenhall Valley Library Large Meeting Room on Sunday, April 23 from 2:00-3:00.

Thanks again,
