Poems written by several local students in Bonnie Revelle's creative writing class at Moffat County High School last spring were accepted by Creative Communications for publication in the summer anthology, "A Celebration of Young Poets." The Creative Communications' summer contest is not regionalized but includes poems received during the summer from students in grades K-12 in the United States and Canada. Of the thousands of poems submitted, only the best are selected for publication. Being published in the "Celebration of Young Poets" make students eligible for more than $3,000 in prizes given to the top poets. Top prizes will be awarded after the judging is complete. The summer anthology will be shipped in late November 2004.
Students featured will be Michael Babb, Brendan Beachman, Stephanie Conway, James Dodd, Devon Dunsmuir, Jonathan Furman, Jori Hollenbeck, Robert Lipes, and Janice McIntyre.
The book costs $24. For more information, visit www.poeticpower.com.
