                                            The Community Poetry Post at the Oldsmar Public Library

Poetry has a visceral power to deeply touch our lives. When given proper attention, it can shake us out of our waking sleep into a precious moment of inspiration. The Community Poetry Post is a new project designed to allow the community to be heard through poetry. The Post accepts all types and genres of poetry any time - there are no longer themes, simply send in whatever poem you wish any time of the year..

All members of the community are invited to email their chosen poems to SDemmi@myoldsmar.com; submissions will be featured on the Community Poetry Post bulletin board located in the "Arts and Culture" corner of the Oldsmar Public Library's arcade. Feel free to submit poems at any time, as the post is updated weekly. There are no rules - we only request that the poems you submit are family-friendly in content.

When you send in poetry, let us know if you would like your name to be used, i.e., "YOUR NAME chose this poem to be featured on the Community Poetry Post." If you wish, include a statement about how this poem affects you, what it means to you and why it's your favorite. Remaining anonymous is fine, too.

We look forward to reading your poems at the library!

~S. Demmi
