Budding poets are being invited to write an original poem that will be used as part of an art exhibit in Guelph, Ont.

The City is accepting submissions for an art installation titled Reshaping the Ruins that will be on display at Goldie Mill during Culture Days this September.

The poem must be based on a question: “How does it feel to experience an old space in a new light?”

Writers are being asked to answer the open-ended question about their own experiences with familiar spaces.
