Announcing the Los Gatos Poet Laureate 2015 Poetry Contest

Erica Goss, Poet Laureate of Los Gatos, is sponsoring a poetry contest!

The contest is open to residents of Los Gatos (Santa Clara County or Santa Cruz County), and residents of Santa Clara County. Categories include Adult (18 and over) and Teen (13-17). The contest deadline is March 15, 2015.

Winners will have their poems displayed at participating businesses in Los Gatos during National Poetry Month, April 2015.

The contest is a fundraiser for the second Poet Laureate Scholarship for Creative Writing, awarded annually to a student at Los Gatos High School. The first scholarship winner was Ray Pendleton, currently a student at New York University.

“My goal is to cover Los Gatos with original poems from our town and Santa Clara County,” Erica stated. “I want to give local people a voice. There is so much talent and creativity in our area that deserves to be recognized. I especially want to feature the poetry of our high school students.”
