"Year after year, beginning on March 15, 1927, they have arrived at the Poets' Dinner. They've come from all over: Eureka to Santa Barbara, from Downieville to the east, and even at times from out of state. "They" are folks with an addiction to poetry who look for others with a like affliction. They come to the awards program to hear a guest speaker tell of a particular take on poetry. They have entered their poems, sent them anonymously to the Contest Chair, and they come to find out whether any of their poems are read aloud in that designated area following the banquet and the speaker. Authors identified, applause is instantaneous and spirited, and the prizes are meted out."
