What is your connection to water?
WVIK is partnering with the Bettendorf Library to gather your stories, poems and photographs about one thing we all have in common - water.
In our parts, a river would be an obvious choice. But it could be a wetland, ocean, bottle of water, a waterfall or even a bead of sweat.
We're looking for original stories, poems, and photographs to share on our web site and possibly on the air - and that can be entered in the library's contest. Winners of the library's contest for poetry, essays and songs will be invited to record their work for air and online.
For specifics about entering your work in the library contest go to bettendorflibrary.com and follow the "building common ground" link. Please note, the deadline for entering the contest is Oct. 1. Material may be submitted to our site until Nov. 1.
