Competition: Ruskin Art Club Poetry Award.

Genre(s): Poetry.

Welcome to the back pages of the Gilbert Wesley Purdy Online Bibliography. Rather than merely use a few pages for the Bibliography I have decided to begin posting calls for submissions again. I will be posting information about literary and arts competitions, as well. So you may want to subscribe to the Bibliography RSS (or Atom) in order to get the latest information. If you wish to have your own call for submissions or competition posted, contact me at gwpurdy@yahoo.com. A confirming link may be required in order to post your notice. I will include all notices the I have time to post.

Oh, and I hope you will stop in at the Hyperlinked Internet Bibliography page, as well. Perhaps you will find something of interest there.

Comments: From Academy of American Poets: "Founded by Mary Boyce in 1888, The Ruskin Art Club is among the oldest and most influential of cultural and art associations in the Southwest. As the first women’s cultural organization in Los Angeles, the club also played a major role in advancing the cause of women in the early decades of the new century. Membership in the Ruskin Art Club is now open to men. Today, the RAC provides scholarships and prizes to local artist, writers and musicians, and a variety of readings and programs."

Judges shall recuse themselves from considering any manuscript where they recognize the work.
