Welcome to the Gwendolyn Brooks Writers Association of Florida official web site.
The association celebrates the life and legacy of poet Gwendolyn Brooks by providing a multi-cultural gathering place for poets (and non-poets) to experience poetry and culture. You do not have to be William Shakespeare to participate in this association or submit poetry, you only have to who you are.

Revelry is the literary voice of the association, a yearly publication of poetry from local and other poets across the country. If you wish to submit your poem(s), please review the submission guidlines under the Submissions link.

The association offers a $1000 poetry prize to commemorate the legacy of novelist and educator Thomas Burnett Swann. The prize is presented at an open reading of the poems included in the yearly Revelry publication. The event, free and open to public, is scheduled for an afternoon in early June, in Sanford, Florida.
