Magnetic Poetry Contest!

by Heather Jagman 4/6/2010 4:16:00 PM

Help us celebrate National Poetry Month by creating a poem on our magnetic word board and snapping a picture of it with your phone or camera!

We've set a up a magnet board with plenty of words to help you create poetic masterpieces on the first floor of Richardson Library on DePaul's Lincoln Park campus.  

Send your photo to, DePaul University Libraries' Flickr Account.  You MUST include your name and contact information in the body of your message. We will remove your contact info before we post your photo.  


Don't have a camera handy when poetic inspiration strikes? Ask at the Reference Desk, and we can snap the picture for you.

We'll include some of our favorites in "The Full Text," the DePaul University Libraries blog; and one lucky poet will win a new ipod shuffle!  The winner will be selected at random from all eligible entries. And yes, we'll be using our judgment to determine what "eligible" means, so you should too.   We reserve the right to refrain from posting poems that are offensive, lewd or otherwise, so please save your risqué poems for the home refrigerator; submissions to this contest should be appropriate and in line with the University's Code of Student Responsibility.
