TITLE: 11th Annual Poetry Series

BRIEF ABOUT: Opening this event will be Barbara Astor, who began writing poetry as a child. She developed a love of nature and found an outlet for her feelings through her autobiographical poems. Poet Astor has published in various U.S. literary journals.  In addition to receiving local recognition for her poetry, in 2009, Astor won an honorable mention in the New River TriAnnual Poetry Awards sponsored by the Florida State Poet’s Association, Inc., a member of the National Federation of State Poetry Societies (NFSPS). In late 2011, she published Thirty Years Past (Finishing Line Press). 

     In conjunction with this series, submissions of original poetry for their 2nd Annual Poetry Competition are being accepted through March 9, 2012. Aspiring poets of all ages are invited to participate in the contest. Winners will be awarded cash prizes and be invited to read or have their poetry read at the final poetry reading on April 5.
