Forward’s poetry contest – Feb. 14 deadline
It has been brought to my attention that New York’s Jewish Daily Forward newspaper is hosting a poetry competition pegged on the 1911 Triangle Waist Company Factory Fire – which killed 146 workers, most of them immigrant women – and its legacy. Two poets will win $500 each, for an original poem in English or in Yiddish. The application deadline is Feb. 14. Entrants must be 18 or older, and legal residents of the U.S.
