Continue reading below

Northern Essex Community College  is now seeking entries for its Peace Poetry contest. Students in kindergarten through grade 12 who are enrolled in either a public or private school, as well as adults affiliated with the schools, and Northern Essex Community College students, are invited to participate in the college’s fifth annual contest. Participants of all ages are invited to submit original poems on the subject of peace. The deadline is Friday, March 15. Some 80 poems and accompanying artwork will be selected for publication in a small book to be published later in the spring. In addition, selected entrants will be invited to take part in a poetry reading on May 3 on Northern Essex’s Haverhill campus. Last year, more than 1,000 entries were received from 48 schools. The contest is coordinated by Paul Saint Amand, a member of the college’s English faculty and a Vietnam veteran who is committed to peace. Entries may be submitted to peacepoetry@necc.mass.edu  or NECC Peace Poetry Contest, 100 Elliott St., Spurk 317H, Haverhill 01830. For more information, contact Saint Amand at psaintamand@necc.mass.edu  or 978-556-3307.
