2014 High School Poet Search


It is my supreme pleasure and most sincere honor to invite the following students to represent their schools and the people of their communities by joining me onstage at my final official reading as Poet Laureate of Erie County, PA. Each of these fantastic young poets will be paid a $100 honorarium for reading one of their original poems on April 28th and will be invited to attend a Summer Writing Workshop in late June.

Please join me in congratulating:
