Hope at Hand Haunting Exhibit
Jacksonville, Florida (October 9, 2019): What better way to celebrate Halloween than with haunting poems? On October 1, 2019, Hope at Hand issued a community-wide invitation to adults 18 and older for original thrilling poems. The challenge is to share frights of the real or fantastical, of the spiritual or body, black cats or ghosts, in any way that compels those who like a good scare. One winner will be chosen and receive two tickets to Hope at Hand’s Halloween Party on October 26th, where the rest of the chosen poems will be exhibited.
Hope at Hand is sponsored by the City of Jacksonville, the Cultural Council of Greater Jacksonville, and the Florida Division of Cultural Affairs.
