Denver County Fair - Poetry Contest  

Denver has a diverse society.

Some people have been here all their lives, some moved here for school or work and never left. Some just got here.

No matter how long you've been here, you made memories. We want you to share your favorite Denver memory.


Take part in the 2017 Denver County Fair Poetry Contest, in partnership with Lighthouse Writers and Tattered Cover Bookstore.

 We’ve got fantastic prizes: Fair ribbons, cash, Lighthouse Writers workshop, Tattered Cover book tokens, participation in the Poetry Performance  — and your poem displayed as public art in a Denver neighborhood! 

 Submit your poems by July 07, 2017.
