This project is made possible by the Indiana Arts Commission, and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency. A special thank you for their support for this year’s 2019 The Polk Street Review project!
Our theme for 2019 is, “If I Only Knew Then What I Know Now . . .” (think: looking back; lessons learned; not everything is black or white, etc). This theme brought in some great prose, images, song lyrics and poetry submissions! Ribbon Prizes will be awarded for our Merit Award (Best in Book), and 1st Place, 2nd Place, 3rd Place, and (2) Honorable Mentions in our three categories (prose, poetry/song lyrics, images).
Our popular book launch in February is one of LSS’s annual Signature Events, and the 2019 The Polk Street Review book launch celebration was held on February 23, 2019 from 6-10pm. We all enjoyed dinner catered by LSS Board member Emily Wasonga ~ her sampler plates of International Cuisine are always a fabulous treat! Emily believes in our nonprofit efforts and generously donates a percentage of foods sales to LSS. Emily sponsors the International Section in The Polk Street Review!
At 7pm, we began with Awards, and then presentations of a variety of poems, prose, songs, and artwork presented by some of this year’s submittors. There was a brief intermission, and then more great presentations. We were “live on Facebook” for almost all of the evening, so feel free to watch those videos, filmed via cell phone, here: https://www.facebook.com/pg/LSS1274/live_videos/
About The Polk Street Review
The Polk Street Review is an annual anthology that celebrates Noblesville with three categories: images, song lyrics/poetry, and prose. There is one simple rule for submissions: they must be either submitted by people with a connection to Noblesville or the submission content must be connected to Noblesville. The book was originally founded in 2011 by two Noblesville authors, Kurt A. Meyer and Bill Kenley. LSS took over publication in 2016 and has published the 2017 and 2018 editions. The 2019 edition received over 180 submissions, and has the support of local businesses purchasing advertising space. TPSR is the only publication that celebrates life and business in Noblesville! Join us for the book launch on February 23, 2019!

Fact or Fiction? YOU Decide . . .
With over 140 submissions and over 100 images, songs, poems, and prose pieces selected for publication, this year’s The Polk Street Review is certainly a good read.
Thank you to all the Sponsors and Patrons who supported the 2018 edition, and a special thank you to the Indiana Arts Commission, for grant support for our 2018 project!
