PEACE AND WAR POETRY SCHOLARSHIP COMPETITION
Last fall, Luna Negra Magazine offered three scholarships for the most effective poems on the theme of "peace versus war." We are pleased to announce that we will again be offering this opportunity to the students of Kent State University.
This scholarship is made possible by a generous donation by Ohio poet and artist John Paul Kusnir. Kusnir attended Kent State in 1966, was drafted and served in Vietnam from 1966-69 and returned to Kent State in 1973. The intention of this contest is to reopen a dialogue with the current generation of Kent State students on the topic of "peace versus war."
We are looking for poems, no longer than a page, with a creative and thoughtful interpretation on the theme, decided by Kusnir, of "Stop the wars, now!" Interested students should email their submission to firstname.lastname@example.org, with a short bio, no later than Nov. 1.
