Elizabeth Poetry Festival

Published on June 2, 2004 by

Crowds pack into schools for sports events, but imagine a large audience in an urban city listening to poetry. Sally Hughes, a published poet and school secretary at EHS Edison House, decided four years ago that students in Elizabeth have the talent and the desire to compete in a poetry festival. The fourth annual poetry festival was made possible through a Pride Grant from the Elizabeth Education Association. Winner of the Mid-Atlantic Emmy Award: Outstanding Public Affairs Series.
