We received nearly fifty submissions, and there were many exemplary poems and fascinating histories of the La Crosse area. A reminder that the “Hear, Here” project is always open for story submissions, at http://www.
The “Hear, Here” Poetry Contest will conclude on June 10, at Artspire. Join us to celebrate the winning poems and to welcome 2017-2018 Wisconsin Poet Laureate Karla Huston, who will wrap up the festivities with a reading of her own work, including a group of poems about La Crosse’s old Doerflinger’s department store, where she once worked.
Thank you to all of the writers who submitted such energized and interesting poems. We’ve been delighted by the outpouring of stories and interest.
