WCPA Annual Poetry Contest Fund
The WCPA has received a generous donation from the O'Hara Family to ensure the continuation
of the annual poetry contest in the name of poet Frank O'Hara.
In 2010 the contest was officially renamed the Frank O'Hara Prize.
Contributions to the fund should be payable to the Worcester County Poetry Association. Please indicate Annual Contest Fund on the memo line.
College Poetry Competition Fund
The Worcester County Poetry Association inaugurated the College Poetry Competition in 2008 to encourage and recognize the next generation of poets. The finalists, who are nominated by faculty and administrators at colleges in Worcester County, compete for two available awards: the Poetry Manuscript Prize and the Poetry Performance Prize.
This fund, established in 2009 with a donation by Susan Elizabeth Sweeney, ensures the continuation of the program.
Contributions to the fund should be payable to the Worcester County Poetry Association. Please indicate College Poetry Fund on the memo line.
