Wye River Upper School seeks photo, poetry entries
CENTREVILLE — Wye River Upper School is accepting poetry and photography submissions for its inaugural Young Artists Festivals. Students in grades 6 through 12 throughout the Chesapeake region are encouraged to submit their best photos and poetry to be judged, displayed and published online.
Dave Mullen, festival organizer and Interim Head of School, hopes the festivals will provide an outlet for area students to express hope and motivation through their creative works.
“The goal is to promote and celebrate the poetry and imagery of the Chesapeake region as seen through the experiences of adolescents beyond our own school walls,” Mullen said.
Online submissions for the Poetry Festival are due by 5 p.m. by Friday, Jan. 15, 2021.
Online submissions for the Photography Festival are due by 5 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 12, 2021.
