Ferndale Arts Commission launches poetry-in-photo contest


FERNDALE - People of all ages have until March 12 to enter the Ferndale Arts Commission's free verse photo project.

Photographs must be at least 8 inches by 10 inches, and mounted.

Entries will be displayed in participating Ferndale businesses during April, which is National Poetry Month
