2013 Max Ehrmann Poetry Competition features river theme

TERRE HAUTE — Art Spaces Inc.-Wabash Valley Outdoor Sculpture Collection and Arts Illiana are preparing for the 2013 Max Ehrmann Poetry Competition.

The competition is open to individuals of all ages either living, working or attending school in Vigo, Parke, Putnam, Sullivan, Vermillion and Clay counties in Indiana. Cash prizes will be awarded. Entries must be mailed or delivered by Feb. 22.

The 2013 Max Ehrmann Poetry Contest is a part of 2013 Year of the River, a community-wide initiative centered in Terre Haute, featuring arts, environmental, educational and recreational events focused on the Wabash River, and its impact on our lives.  

Poems will be accepted on the theme of the Wabash River, its watershed, other rivers or water as it impacts our lives. Participants also may write poetry about other works of art that are river-related, such as paintings, novels, music or other poems. As long as they are relevant to this theme they will be included. Up to two poems per contestant will be accepted. The contest will be judged by an Indiana poet.  

The purpose of the competition is to encourage the writing of new poetry as a contemporary art form deeply rooted in tradition, to foster an interdisciplinary connection between art forms, and to honor Max Ehrmann, a treasured regional poet whose works were inspired by a love for his own community, its natural surroundings and the people in it. A life-size bronze sculpture of this nationally renowned writer, by West Terre Haute artist Bill Wolfe, was installed in 2010 in Terre Haute as part of the Art Spaces collection.  It is located at the northwest corner of Seventh Street and Wabash Avenue on the Arts Corridor at the Crossroads of America.

For an entry form go to www.wabashvalley

artsilliana.org or write to info@wabashvalley

artspaces.com. Or call Art Spaces at 812-235-2801 or Arts Illiana at 812-235-5007.  

Completed entry forms and poems should be delivered or mailed to Art Spaces Inc., 669 Ohio St., Terre Haute, IN 47807.

Winning entries will be exhibited in April in the Vigo County Public Library at Seventh and Poplar streets. Readings by the winners, and a selection of works by the professional poet adjudicating the competition, will take place at a public awards ceremony at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College in April, National Poetry Month.

The 2013 Max Ehrmann Poetry Competition is sponsored by The Woods with added support from Big Picture, Delta Kappa Gamma, The Golden Frame, Indiana State University, Vigo County Education Foundation, Vigo County Historical Society and Wise Pies.
