Valentine's Day Poetry Contest

Plans for the 8th Annual Valentine's Day Poetry Contest sponsored by the San Pedro Sun are well underway. Holiday Hotel Bar's verandah is the place to be on Sunday, February 14th at 2:00 p.m. "literally" just for the fun of it. Master of Ceremonies will be noted author of Wolfe's Woofer, Mr. Dennis Wolfe.

It is so easy to enter this poetry contest. Write a poem about anything you want. Although it is Valentine's Day, the poem does not need to be about love of a person. Only three entries per person will be accepted. We will print as many entries as possible prior to the contest, but if you choose not to be published, just let us know. We will also accept entries during the contest, so if you are inspired during the contest, grab a napkin and start writing. Mr. Wolfe will read the poems at the contest, but if you are present we encourage you to read you own. (We think it impresses the judges!) Categories for writers are divided into foreign and domestic. Awards will be given for the Most Original, Most Romantic, Most Humorous, and Best Tearjerker. The poem the judges determine to be the best overall will receive the grand prize. We welcome anyone wishing to submit entries to mail them to the SPS.

We are appealing to the many talented locals of San Pedro to please send in your poems!! Foreign entries are pouring in, but only island entries will receive the wonderful prizes that have been collected so far.
