Spend your weekend submitting poems, stories, art to Dylan Days 2011

Dylan Days 2011 will be May 26-29 in Hibbing, Minnesota, the Iron Range hometown of Bob Dylan. Dylan fans travel from around the world for storytelling and nostalgia while others simply enjoy a grassroots series of arts, music and writing activities. This is my 10th year as co-chair of Dylan Days, specializing in the literary contest journal and public relations.

Some of the first deadlines for the contests are coming up soon. For instance, if you have a poem or a short story sitting around that you’d like to see published we genuinely want to see it. Especially from you, Mr. or Ms. Frustrated Professional Seeking Creative Outlet Who Reads This Blog! We always get lots of entries and they’re all welcome, but we’re really trying to encourage more from the Upper Midwest and Minnesota in particular. Good stories and poems always have a chance. Check out the rules. The deadline is Tuesday, March 1.

March 1 is also the deadline for our first ever Cover Art/Button Image contest. Artists and photographers from the seven-county region of northeastern Minnesota are invited to create the 2011 Dylan Days image for Bob Dylan’s 70th birthday year. Find out more.
