The W.B. Yeats Society would like to receive more submissions for its 2012 poetry competition.  We are running behind previous years at this point because we couldn't promote the competition earlier.  We appreciate whatever you can do to encourage submissions in accordance with our requirements, which are listed below.  Thank you.

Don Bates, Vice President
