Have you submitted a book spine poem to our little contest yet?

If you haven’t, you should!

Winners will receive gift certificates worth up to $100 in Eerdmans books — and which of us couldn’t use a little extra book-buying power in the back-to-school season?

In case you’re still not sure what a book spine poem is or how to create one, here’s an encore presentation of our helpful video demonstration:

The Pilgrim's Progress

Author Darrin Snyder Belousek submitted this poem, entitled “The Pilgrim’s Progress.”
(Click the image to view all qualifying poems entered thus far.)

You can read the contest rules in their entirety when you enter, but here they are in a nutshell:

1. Your poem must contain at least three books.

2. Of those books, at least one must be an Eerdmans title.

That’s it — now get out there and assemble your poem!

Submissions will be accepted until midnight Friday; the one-week voting period will begin bright and early Saturday morning.
