We also hosted an annual Chapbook Contest, an Annual Adult Contest, an annual Student Contest, and monthly workshops and readings from Boca to Jupiter. Most activities were free and open to all.

We were instrumental in establishing the first Palm Beach Poetry Festival and hosted numerous other special events over the years, such as an Earth Day Poetry Contest and Reading.
