Our first Twitter contest! The six sculpted gates that create the Forged From Nature exhibition look so great in our ever-changing gardens that we thought they could inspire poety! And so here is our first Twitter contest! Write a poem that fits inside one Tweet and you might win prizes from our Garden Gift Shop and have your poem features on a Garden post card. Official Rules: Each person may submit poetry of any kind inspired by Forged from Nature: An Exhibition of Garden Gates by Andrew T. Crawford. Each poem must fit within one tweet (141 characters) and each tweet must also include #BGpoem (this is not part of the poem, but only tweets containing #BGpoem will be considered). The contest begins Friday, April 8th and continues until 8PM on Sunday, April 17th. Garden staff will choose the winner and seek poems that capture the essence of the gates and Garden most eloquently. The chosen winner will receive a prize package from the Garden Gift Shop which includes a Forged From Nature t-shirt (sizes S-XL available). The selected poem will be used by the Garden on postcards to be sold in the Garden Gift Shop and be posted in our Fall Newsletter. The Garden retains the right to use the winning poem to help celebrate and promote Forged from Nature. We look forward to reading your poems!
