Ms. Dimick,Congratulations! Your poem “Running on Air” qualified for the next step in the DeLand Museum of Art’s 2020 Poetic Visions Competition! Your poem will be displayed alongside the artwork which inspired it in a special art exhibit beginning on or around August 21st at the museum. The visiting public will be able to vote on the artwork and poem combination they are most inspired by. The poems that garner the most votes will be awarded first, second and third place. In addition, your poem will be published in an anthology commemorating the exhibit and your literary excellence. A waiver is required in order for your poem to be included in both the judging done by the public and the anthology which will be printed. You will find both a doc and pdf version of the waiver attached. Please fill out one of them, sign it electronically, and return via this email only. Failure to complete and email back a signed waiver in a timely manner can and likely will result in us being unable to include your work in the contest and book. Please email the waiver in pdf or doc form only- do not send scanned documents. Also, if you are able, please try to attend all events related to the exhibit. Because of the pandemic, those event dates may change. As of this writing, the exhibit will open as scheduled on August 21st and voting will begin on that date. However, the August 21st reception is almost certain to be rescheduled due to the surge in COVID-19 cases the state is experiencing. You will be notified of any new dates for live readings and receptions. Thank you again for your participation and good luck in the exhibition!
