Civic Saturday Poetry Contest: Submit by June 24

We are pleased to support Citizen University's upcoming Civic Saturday celebration in Portland. Civic Saturday is a civic analogue to church: a gathering of friends and strangers in a common place to nurture a spirit of shared purpose. But it's not about church religion or synagogue or mosque religion. It's about American civic duty-the creed of liberty, equality, and self-government that truly unites us.  It is free and open to all. 

Portland's first ever Civic Saturday is July 7, 2018. The speaker is the Attic Institute's associate fellow Wendy Willis

To celebrate the city's first Civic Saturday, Wendy is inviting you to enter the Civic Saturday Poetry Contest to read a poem on the theme of common place and shared purpose. The winner will be invited to read at the July 7, 2018, Civic Saturday, which will take place from 11am-1pm at Taborspace lawn, 5441 SE Belmont St.

Deadline to enter: June 24
