Akers Award for Youth Poetry

This award is in honor of founding editor of the di-vêrsé-city Youth Anthology, Deborah A. Akers.  The award honors outstanding achievements by poets in elementary, middle and high school.  Each year a panel of esteemed writers in our community serves as judges for this competition.  

di-vêrsé-city Youth Anthology

Each year the Austin International Poetry Festival (AIPF) recognizes youth poets by publishing their work together in a truly di-verse anthology. Each featured K-12 Youth Poet receives one copy of di-vêrsé-city Youth Anthology free.  Additional copies are available for purchase for $15.  For more information on purchasing Youth Anthologies email aipfest@outlook.com
