Award-Winning Poems from the Smith's Tavern Poet Laureate Contest
Each year in April the poets of New York’s Capital Region make their annual pilgrimage to Voorheesville, a quiet upstate village nestled among the shadows of the Helderberg Escarpment in western Albany County. They are inspired by the quest to have their name engraved upon the coveted trophy of William Shakespeare presented to the poet crowned as Laureate of Smith’s Tavern. The contest, a rousing success since its inception, is organized by the Sunday Four Poets, an open-mic poetry forum dedicated to continuing the rich cultural legacy of Voorheesville and the adjacent hilltowns. Both the forum, held the fourth Sunday of each month, and the contest, are open to any interested poets.
This latest edition features three poems each by 2011 Poet Laureate Howard Kogan, Marilyn Paarlberg, and obeedúid~, as well as one poem each from the other participating poets.

About the Compilers
The Sunday Four Poets is an open-mic poetry forum devoted to the writing and performance of poetry by participating poets from New York’s capital region. Based in the Old Songs Community Center in Voorheesville, the group has gathered the fourth Sunday of every month since May 2008 to share their works and to hear a featured poet. The Sunday Four Poets were the sponsors of the Poet Laureate contest, held at Smith’s Tavern in Voorheesville.
