Poets are invited to write poems in response to a quote by author and Indianapolis native Kurt Vonnegut in conjunction with the One City One Prompt activities sponsored by the Transformative Language Arts Network, the Kurt Vonnegut Memorial Library and Brick Street Poetry Inc.
The quote is:
“What should young people do with their lives today? Many things, obviously. But the most daring thing is to create stable communities in which the terrible disease of loneliness can be cured.” - Kurt VonnegutPoems are to be emailed by Dec. 1, 2011 to: firstname.lastname@example.org. All poems submitted will be considered for publication in the Winter 2012 edition of the Tipton Poetry Journal. One poem will be selected to receive $100 as the Editor’s Choice Award.
