Feeling more wordy than nerdy? Ready to realize your dream of becoming a celebrated limerick writer? Hoping for a contest to showcase your abilities? Here is your chance to claim your title and win a $50 gift certificate to Salt Spring Books.
ArtSpring, the Salt Spring Island Public Library and the Salt Spring Island Foundation have come together to assemble a document of this time of coronavirus, created in our own inimitable Salt Spring fashion. Submit your work(only one per person of any age) to ArtSpring at artspring.ca/limerick.
This contest is open to anyone who lives in the great Province of British Columbia. You have from July 27 to August 14, 2020 to submit and be judged by three of Salt Spring's finest writers: Kathy Page, Chris Humphreys, and Diana Hayes. A celebratory Zoom event of limerick readings will be hosted by the Salt Spring Island Public Library on August 20. Two winners will be and announced on August 31, 2020.
And here's the best part, even if you don't win a prize your work may be immortalized in a book, available at the end of November for a minimum donation of just $15 to the Salt Spring Island Foundation.
