Poetry contest planned at Merriweather Library

A women’s poetry slam in conjunction with Women’s History Month will be held at 5:30 p.m. March 18 in the Frank E. Merriweather Library, 1324 Jefferson Ave. at East Utica Street.

Sponsored by County Legislator Betty Jean Grant and We Are Women Warriors, the winners in each round will be determined by the audience. The final three participants then will compete for top ranking and cash prizes.

Poets can select their own topics and must recite their poems without paper. To compete, poets can sign up by calling Grant at 602-5877 or Karla Thomas at 894-0914.
