“Do you always watch for the longest day of the year and then miss it? I always watch for the longest day of the year and then miss it.”Daisy Buchanan, The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
Let’s try not to miss the summer solstice this year! In honor of the official transition into summer, write a poem on the theme of daylight. Let your poem span at least one entire page.
Email your poem to firstname.lastname@example.org by 11:59 pm on June 20th (the summer solstice!). The winner will receive a gift certificate to the independent bookstore of their choice, or I will make a donation in their honor to a nonprofit.
