For more than 80 years, the San Antonio Public Library has celebrated the talents of the city’s young writers with the Young Pegasus Poetry Competition. Open to poets 18 and under, the Young Pegasus Poetry Competition invites poets to submit their work, which is then reviewed by a panel of independent judges.
Fiona Briggs, a St. Luke’s Episcopal School third grader, had her poem deemed worthy of publication and her poem will be printed in the annual Young Pegasus Anthology.
Fiona will join other selected poets attending the awards ceremony on May 6th. She will receive an award certificate and a copy of the year’s anthology in which her work appears.
All selected poems are read aloud during the ceremony, either by the poets themselves or a member of the judging panel.
