The contest invites writers to submit poetry or short, non-fiction prose about a real place/person/ event or object within the Greater Lansing (Michigan) Area. In both categories (poetry & prose), the 1st, 2nd, 3rd place winners, plus two Honorable Mention winners will receive cash awards. All submissions will be considered for publication in a book about the Greater Lansing Area. The contest deadline is July 14, 2023. For full contest guidelines, see:
The workshop facilitator will be Ruelaine Stokes, poet, performance artist and president of the Lansing Poetry Club. Ruelaine has taught writing—both creative writing and non-fiction—for many years at Lansing Community College, Michigan State University, and in community workshops. Her writing can be found in “4 Against the Wall” (2005) and “Jar of Plenty” (2021). For more information, see: www.ruelainestokes.com
Because the seats in this workshop are limited, if you sign up and later change your mind, please cancel your ticket so another writer can take your place.
The “My Secret Lansing Project” is sponsored by the Lansing Poetry Club with support of the City of Lansing Arts Project Grant Program funded by the City of Lansing with administration by the Arts Council of Greater Lansing.
