Gainesville Veterans for Peace invited all students, K-12, in Alachua County to submit one poem on the subject of peace. Out of hundreds of entries, winners are selected by a panel of graduate students from the English Department at the University of Florida.
Winners are invited to read their poems aloud at the public reading on May 11 at 2:30 p.m. at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Gainesville (4225 NW 34th Street) and are also published in the 2013 Peace Poetry book. 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners will receive a gift certificate to Book Gallery West in Gainesville.
