Path to Poetry


Saturday, July 1, 2017



Entry Fees

$5 per entry, with no limit on the number of entries per person.


The winning poem will be stenciled onto a walking path in the city of Cottage Grove, MN. Both the winner and finalists will receive public recognition for their work -- which may include social media recognition, highlighted on the city website, and/or news coverage.


The Cottage Grove Arts Commission invites you to submit your poetry for our first annual Path to Poetry contest. One lucky poem will be chosen to be stenciled onto a Cottage Grove walking path, along with other fun perks for the winner and finalists.

Anybody can submit up to 5 original poems per entry (with a $5-per-entry fee), with no limit to the number of entries per person. Submissions are accepted through email, mail, or in-person between May 1 and July 1. Visit for more information about how you can submit your poetry.
