“Poets deserve opportunities to exhibit their work and find recognition,” says Dr. John Scribner, the organization’s contest director. “We’re especially keen on inspiring amateur poets, and we think this competition will achieve that. Illinois has made many wonderful poets over the years, and I’d like to discover new ones from among the Rockford-area grassroots poets.”
