Registration is not required for this event. Just come out to join the fun!

Due to the number of contests and the limited time allowed at the venue, readers will be presented in order of first place winners, second place winners, and third place winners as time allows. We ask that readers limit comments on their work and focus on the presentation of the winning poem so that as many readers as possible will be able to present.

The Stryker Center is located at 412 N. Boundary St., Williamsburg, Va. Click here for a Google Map.

We will not be providing meal options this year, however snacks will be made available gratis and there are several restaurants close by where members may convene afterwards for lunch and fellowship.

We eagerly anticipate this event. Winning poets will be notified before hand and announcement with places in all categories will be made on the website by May 20th. We hope to see you there!
