Warm your hands #poetry #homeless


homeless

Warm your hands

its so cold

offer kindness

stories told

how many lives

have been touched

warming station

food, beds and such

 

I dont often promote submission opportunities on my blog. But this submission is the kind where your poetry (and a mere $3 per poem) helps people during the winter months.

Here are the details:

The English Department and Library at Blue Mountain Community College in Pendleton, Oregon, invite you to submit poems to our first annual poetry contest supporting the Pendleton Warming Station.
The Pendleton Warming Station is a place for those without homes to stay overnight when the temperatures drop below 32 degrees. PWS is open from November 1st to March 31st each year.
To submit, please PayPal $3 per poem (for up to 5 poems) to:
WarmingStationPoemsATyahooDOTcom and  email poems in a single Word Document attachment to WarmingStationPoemsATyahooDOTcom .
1 page limit per poem. Winner and 5 honorable mentions will be published on the BMCC Library blog. All proceeds will go to the Pendleton Warming Station. We will accept submissions November 24th through December 24th. Winners and Honorable Mentions will be announced January 1st.
Please send any questions to WarmingStationPoemsATyahooDOTcom
