If you have ever walked in St. Paul, you might have seen sidewalks paved with poetry.
I saw them and walked on them. I thought it was a very cool idea.
If you are interested in writing everyday poems for city sidewalk, you can enter the 2011 Sidewalk Poetry Contest for a chance to win one of the five prizes of $150 and citywide honor! Winning poems will be permanently published in city sidewalks.
Sorry you have to be a St. Paul resident to be eligible. I wish we could have this in Woodbury too.
Even though Woodbury residents can’t enter the contest, we can still write poems.
Yes, there is a poet in each of us.
