Domestic Violence Poetry Contest Tuesday

The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford’s student literary magazine, Baily’s Beads, and the Bradford YWCA are sponsoring a poetry contest to spotlight Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

The contest is open to students, faculty, staff and community members. Those wishing to participate may sign up Oct. 28 in the Harriett B. Wick Chapel on campus at 6 p.m., at which time a reading of the poems will take place. Contestants may also pre-register by calling the YWCA at 368-4235, ext. 116.

Former members of the writing faculty at Pitt-Bradford will serve as judges, and prizes will be awarded for first, second and third. Poems should deal with domestic violence themes.

For disability needs related to the event, contact the Pitt-Bradford Office of Disability Services at 814-362-7609 or clh71@pitt.edu.

To hear more about the poetry contest you can listen to today's LiveLine or last Tuesday's (10/14) by going to WESB.com/listen and clicking on the "Local Programs" tab.
