Lansing Online News is seeking local poets, photographers and artists!

Hey local writers and artists!  Check out what Lansing Online News is doing throughout April!:

In honor of National Poetry Month and as a tribute to Michigan Poet Edgar Guest, Lansing Online News (LON) will publish a poem a day during April. In addition to some old favorites, we will run some work from young poets.

Mr. Guest was what was a “newspaper poet” who wrote a new verse each day for the Detroit Free Press, reaching an amazing 15,000 poems. He was named poet laureate of Michigan in 1952.

We want to encourage Lansing-area poets to contribute. We also want to encourage Lansing area artists and photographers to send us illustrations that we can use with the poems. Please send poems and digital images to with POEM-A-DAY in the subject line. Please also state in the email that we can use your material as part of this series.

Check all this out at Lansing Online!
