The Austin Poetry Society (www.austinpoetrysociety.org) has announced its annual awards contests for 2011. Among 28 contests, to be judged by distinguished poets who are not members of APS, is the “Resistance and Repression Award”, offered in loving memory of Marilyn Buck. Small cash prizes are offered for each annual contest, and several contests might be of interest to radical poets. Membership in APS is required, and full details are available on the APS website. All entries must be received by March 31, 2011.
See posts for reports on the Nov. 7 memorial held in Oakland (and previous memorials). A memorial was also held in NYC on November 13 at the Shabazz Center.
