Arts by the River in Mankato is an art and music festival running June 8 from 10 to 6pm and June 9 from noon to 5pm at Riverfront Park. SMPS will have a table at the event where all SMPS poets (you must be current with membership dues) can sell books. SMPS members are encouraged to come read on the main stage each day.
We are hoping to announce the winners of the Mankato Poetry Walk and Ride Poetry contest during this event - so if you have submitted poems, be sure to watch for the announcement time and come out to the park. We'd love to have some winners come up and read their winning poems!

Joellen Preston is going to help make some poetry-on-a-sticks for us - she could use help with selecting poems for this and gluing things together.
