It’s an emotional experience to have to say goodbye to a friend. In November 2018 I did just that. Roger was a poet whose work got better each time he sat down to write. While he was dying he asked me to do him one last favor–to create a poetry contest in his name.
While the subject and contest rules are figured, Safety Harbor Writers & Poets is offering an opportunity for you to experience his poetry. For supporting the Roger Howard Poetry Prize, we will send you one of his books for $10 or two for a $15 or higher donation. All donations will be applied to the poetry prize.
Our official contest announcement will be made around March 5, 2019. If you purchase one of Roger’s books and live outside of the area, please include your mailing address. Poetry books will be shipped through USPS media mail.
