Annual National Poetry Awards Conference Weekend Conference Weekend August 19 -21, 2011

Dallas, Texas

August 19-21, 2011


Thank you for taking the National Poetry Awards into consideration. This event will provide awards, honors, and entertainment in the form of poetry, music and dance. You will be a part of a historical event. On a national scale, we are poised to make history again. Our goal is to raise awareness while inspiring poets to share the cultural background of this form of art and enlighten people to its significance. This art form has grown into a way of communicating the messages about struggles that we all seem to face day to day. We will donate part of the proceeds from this event to different art councils /schools throughout the United States. We will assist youths whose Description: parents are incarcerated and need assistance with continuing their educations.
