Texas group seeks poetry from Kenai

The Texas Poetry Alliance is offering a $1,000 grand prize in its annual spiritual poetry contest open to the public.

No entry fee is required and everyone is invited to submit a poem. Over $4,500 in cash and prizes will be awarded.

"Our goal is to encourage new talent," said poetry director Larrie Green.

"In a world where poetry is the Cinderella of the arts, we are helping poets find their glass slipper. Spiritual poems, which may be written on any subject and using any style, tend to inspire the reader, thus our desire for entries of a spiritual nature."

To enter, send one poem 20 lines or less to: Free Poetry Contest, 3412-A Moonlight Ave., El Paso, Texas 79904. Or enter on-line at www.freecontest.com.

The deadline for entering is Dec. 7. A winners' list will be sent to

all entrants. The editors reserve the right to publish the winning poems online or in print.

Writers sought for faith anthology

Writers from Alaska are invited to share their own experiences of the power of prayer and faith in an anthology to be published in the latter half of 2003.

The anthology, "A Matter Of Faith," is being compiled by Arrowhead Publishing to provide examples of the positive power of prayer. Writers are invited to submit essays of up to 750 words that share their own experiences of how their faith has helped them meet major challenges in the journey through life.

Anyone whose work is selected will share in the royalties from book sales.

Information on this project is available at www.arrowpublishing.net or by sending a stamped self addressed envelope to A Matter Of Faith, Arrowhead Publishing, P.O. Box 1472, O'Fallon, Mo., 63366.

If you have a public service announcement or upcoming function for your local church, fax your information to 283-3299 or e-mail it to clarion@alaska.net. For more information, call 283-7551.

The deadline for Friday submissions is 5 p.m. Tuesday.
