Each poem is to be contained to one page of a Microsoft Word document, prepared in Times New Roman 12-point font, with one- inch margins on all four sides. The poet’s contact information - name, address, email and phone number - are to be placed at the top of each page. Preference will be given to poems that contain one or more of the following characters: a frog, a moose, bees and bears. However, poems without these characters will still be considered.
The poems selected will be published in a book before the end of 2016 and given to children who are patients in Indianapolis hospitals. The cost of publishing was made possible by a grant from the Nicholas H. Noyes, Jr., Memorial Foundation.
