This contest has been an annual event for some years and is always a huge success. The date of the "reception" in which poetry and paintings are on display at the Port Orford Library is yet to be determined. Attendees vote on their favorite poems in each category. So check back at regular intervals or sign up for our news letter. The event generates a lot of interest and disucssion as one part includes a matching of a painting to a poem- sometimes with surprizing interpretations.
