2nd Friday Poetry Reading Series is often hosted at the library by Poetry of Johnson County (https://www.facebook.com/poetryjohnsoncounty) or Fort Worth Poetry Society (https://www.facebook.com/FortWorthPoetrySociety). The poetry program strives to be different and to challenge poets and their audience, and invites poets to read and perform; sometimes music, dance, and other arts are involved. There is always an open mic segment.
Find details about every creative writing competition—including poetry contests, short story competitions, essay contests, awards for novels, grants for translators, and more—that we’ve published in the Grants & Awards section of Poets & Writers Magazine during the past year. We carefully review the practices and policies of each contest before including it in the Writing Contests database, the most trusted resource for legitimate writing contests available anywhere.
