The National Poetry Month celebration in April is something that joins under one roof the thematic scope event regularly appearance of new work by people who establish themselves as poetry writers and the coming young voice.

The finest in contemporary poetry is in the tone of irreverent playfulness that catches the ear first - a willingness to juggle all the possibilities of language.
The contest is always more than separation between winners and losers. It always brings out the new force, the inspiration, and the proliferation juices in both the poetry writers and poetry readers.
