Calling All Poets 

Felton Library Friends invites SLV residents to submit poems by April 6 on the theme of "heroes and heroines" for the 7th Annual San Lorenzo Valley Poetry Reading. We’d like more poems from all age categories, particularly the youngest group—parents and teachers, please encourage your 4-8 year olds to write or dictate a poem to submit.

Poems selected in four age categories by Santa Cruz Poet Laureate Gary Young will be read at the SLV Poetry Reading on Wednesday, April 27 at the Felton Community Hall. 

Entries must be submitted on or before April 6 by email to feltonlibraryfriends@gmail.
com or by mail to Felton Library Friends, PO Box 1245, Felton, CA 95018.  One poem per poet may be submitted, and must include poet's name, age category, and phone number. The age categories are 4-8 (dictation OK), 9-12, 13-17, and  adult.
