Celebrating Tampa during National Poetry Month

There’s a poetry contest underway to pay out tribute to Florida’s third most significant metropolis, Tampa.

All thirty day period long, area artists have been placing their ideas to verse and describing what the city of Tampa signifies to them.

“This is our Countrywide Poetry Month challenge,” Russo reported. “We’re inquiring everyone in the metropolis who desires to write a poem in celebration of Tampa. It’s a way for us to appear collectively and celebrate the metropolis.”

Russo will choose the winners of the problem by the conclude of Could.

Their poems could at some point be featured in community artwork initiatives through Tampa.
