Poetic thanks for festival success
The Umpqua Valley Poets would like to thank all the organizers of the first Oakland Spoken Word Festival that took place Sept. 22.
It was well attended as a showcase for local writers and enthusiasts. Most of the performances were of original pieces of poetry and prose with many of the writers performing their own work.
Particular attention and thanks must be given to artist Eyanna Roselund of Oakland, whose original artwork graced the posters, donation cans, bookmarks, banners and congratulatory cards given to seven prize winners.
Her talent and enthusiasm ensure our participation in the next Oakland Spoken Word Festival.
