Calling all Poets

Griffith City library is seeking all poetry enthusiasts to put pen to paper and create a unique poem that represents Griffith.

Library Manager, Christine Del Gigante said this is a wonderful opportunity for students and the wider community to express in words their thoughts, memories or feelings of Griffith and what Griffith means to them.

“This is an incredible way to acknowledge the centenary of Griffith and for locals to express themselves in a creative way for all of us to enjoy,” said Mrs Del Gigante.

The winning entries will be announced and read out loud at the official birthday ceremony at the Griffith Regional Theatre on 4 August 2016 and the winners will receive a cash prize of $200.

Library staff are encouraging people from ages 8 years and up to put their thoughts into words and create a poem that will be remembered and recorded for generations to come.

Entry forms can be picked up from the Griffith City Library or downloaded from at www.wrl.nsw.gov.au The Centenary Poetry Competition closes Friday 1 July 2016.
