Beat Poetry Contest

It is National Literacy month y'all so this post is in step with that theme. The grassroots charity Keep St. Pete Lit is not only celebrating their 5th year anniversary but is also organizing a Beat Poetry contest. Fifteen dollars per entry with a limit of 3 entries per person for $45. The top five winners will be taking home a Kerouac shirt and having prime time spots live on the mic for reading their work at the next Friends of Jack Kerouac House event hosted by the Flamingo Sports Bar.  Poems are due by October 1st.  This is a hand lettered flyer, touched up on Photoshop, from a fun project collaboration with Maureen McDowell, the Literary Queen of St. Pete and founder of Keep St. Pete Lit. The next Kerouac night event will take place October 20th at 1230 MLK St N in St. Pete, FL. Contest entry link here.
