A Chance for Poets to Win $500

Starkey Flythe was an outstanding, well published poet, and a writer and mentor to many in the Augusta area. His last poem was published in The New Yorker shortly before he died.  Starkey was a member of the group which sponsors this poetry contest, The Authors Club of Augusta. The Author’s Club of Augusta welcomes submissions from both students and faculty. For details, take a look at the poster below. 


Steven Corey of The Georgia Review said of Starkey: “To me, though, Starkey was a poet first and last, with several volumes and more than several stunning individual poems to his credit.” What better way to honor his memory than with your poems?
