Give It Up For Highland Park...

For sponsoring the Poetry That Moves Contest! Submit an original poem (you don't have to be from Highland Park) by Saturday, October 1. If your poem is one of the 12 selected, it will be printed on a PACE bus operating between Evanston and Waukegan for one month in 2011! Go to the Highland Park Poetry website for submission fees and guidelines. What better way to get your work recognized by the world? Or at least the northern Chicago suburbs...
