mission of the MCPL program is to recognize and promote
excellence in poetry and a sense of accomplishment and pride
among students, artists and individuals who participate
in the program. The program benefits the county by building
a long-term infrastructure for literary advancements in
our schools, our community and our homes.
knows no limits. It appeals to every one of all ages, all
cultures and all professions. Poetry crosses the barriers
of handicapping conditions and unites all who experience
the power of the words. The MCPL offers a variety of programs
that introduce the community to poetry, and provide opportunities
for learning and competition. By so doing, MCPL unites students,
families, artists and the community with this common literary
year we have seen the MCPL program grow, with increased
entries, exciting and heart touching poetry, and outstanding
celebrity judges. It is our dream to continue this meaningful
program, insuring this event will continue for today's poets
and the poets who will inspire us in the future.
MCPL program is funded entirely by donations. It is these
donations that enable us to continue to provide our programs
and the annual competition. While the MCPL program is run
completely by volunteers, it still incurs modest costs.
We are turning to our friends and fellow poets to assist
us with our endeavors and ask for your support. We realize
that in today's economy giving can be difficult and challenging,
so we are not asking for large sums, just $10.00. If each
person who receives our appeal donates $10.00, the future
success of the program is assured.
