The Sue Boynton Poetry Contest is held annually in Bellingham, Washington, in memory of my amazing grandmother, Sue Boynton (shown here in a picture taken in 1919). She was quite a woman. Taught me a lot. Some of it stuck. And that's a good thing. Here's the latest from the people running the contest: The Sue Boynton Poetry Contest is getting ready for this year’s awards ceremony. I know you're not exactly in the neighborhood, but it we appreciate your support and thought you’d be interested to know the following: --We have a terrific new site for the awards ceremony – the Bellingham Cruise Terminal, 355 Harris Street. Please join us (if possible) as we honor this year’s winners at 7:00pm on Wednesday, May 12. All poems that were submitted to this year’s contest will be on display and the winning poems will be read by their authors. --A handsome book of winning poems from the first five years of the Sue Boynton Poetry Contest (2006-2010) is being compiled and will be available for sale at the awards ceremony and at Village Books. Proceeds from the sale benefit the Contest. --Watch for this year’s winning poems in front of the Bellingham library and on WTA buses starting around mid-summer. --Additional information about the contest is also available at the Whatcom Poetry Series site – http://www.whatcompoetryseries.org/.
