Veterans For Peace To Host Peace Poetry Celebration

April 25  – Arcata, CA – Dozens of Humboldt high school students have submitted their poems about peace, the abolition of war, hate or violence, or peacemaking in our communities, and have been invited to read their works at the 2011 Peace Poetry Celebration hosted by Veterans For Peace Chapter 56 at 7pm on May 6 at the Unitarian Universalists’ Meeting Hall, 23 Fellowship Way in Bayside, Calif. The event is free and open to the public.

Cash prizes will be awarded to five poets, and all poems submitted will be published in the Redwood Coast Peace Poetry Anthology. Poets will receive a free copy of the Anthology, which will also be made available for sale after the event through VFP Chapter 56. Copies will also be donated to local schools and libraries.

The Redwood Coast Peace Poetry Contest is sponsored by Humboldt Bay Chapter 56 of Veterans For Peace, Humboldt Unitarian Universalists Fellowship, and the Humboldt Chapter of the Buddhist Peace.
