The Lansing Sidewalk Poetry Competition is now up and running with the support of the City of Lansing's First Impressions Program funded by the City of Lansing through the Lansing Economic Development Corporation, and administration by the Arts Council of Greater Lansing.
This competition, under fiduciary guidance by the Lansing Poetry Club, is looking for poems that celebrate and illuminate where we live, where we work and where we play.
The four areas of Lansing that The Lansing Poetry Club is focusing on are:
the Stadium District
& the Eastside
All residents of Ingham, Eaton and Clinton Counties
are eligible to submit.
As many as eight poems will be selected
and etched in the sidewalks in these locations.
Let’s celebrate our city
and together bring poetry
into the realm
of public art in Lansing.
The deadline for submission of your poems is MAY 12, 2018.
