Thank you to everyone who submitted their work to Poets 11 2012!
Now in its fourth year, Poets 11 is a citywide poetry contest and reading series that collects poems from every neighborhood in San Francisco.
Join us and hear featured poetry readings at branch libraries in each of the City’s 11 districts.
Selected poets will be announced at each district’s branch event.
Local poets were encouraged to submit up to three poems. Poetry is reviewed by Emeritus San Francisco Poet Laureate Jack Hirschman. Selected poets receive a $50 honorarium, are published in an anthology, and will take the microphone at branch libraries and share their works in a variety of languages and topics.
Come support poets from your district and around the City!
