    Because you requested that we notify you of important poetic events, I am delighted to inform you that in just a few weeks, we will be honoring your poetic accomplishments at the International Society of Poets 20th Anniversary Convention and Symposium, to be held at the Riviera Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas, NV, from July 20-23, 2006.

    When you attend the Convention and Symposium, you will present your poetry in front of your fellow poets from around the world (our last convention was celebrated by over 1800 poets and guests from 50 countries worldwide!), and you will be presented with your Outstanding Achievement in Poetry Crystal Award Trophy.

    The Award is a magnificent work of art in itself ($300.00 value), made from imported lead crystal (see it here). It is hand-engraved and mounted on a three-tier solid marble base. This will be the first time ever that we have bestowed these crystal awards. They have been created by artisans that we have commissioned specially for this year in honor of our 20th Anniversary. This impressive 13-inch tall crystal award is so valuable that we have designed a special carrying case just for you to take it home.

    And Chad . . . there's much more . . .

    In recognition of your poetry presentation at this prestigious International Symposium, we will also create and present to you a beautiful and colorful Commemorative Award Medallion to honor your poetic dedication and achievements.

    POETS WILL SHARE $100,000.00 TOTAL IN PRIZES--INCLUDING
    THE SINGLE LARGEST POETRY CASH PRIZE EVER AWARDED--$20,000.00!

    And don't forget the most lucrative amateur poetry contest ever! Your contest entry poem can be written in any style, on any subject . . . and can be up to 40 lines long.

    Just think . . . for this poem alone, you will have the opportunity to win one of over 50 cash and gift prizes. . . including a Grand Prize of $20,000.00 and a $10,000.00 Publishing Contract. There's also a Second Prize of $10,000.00, Third Prize of $5,000.00, two Fourth Prizes of $2,500.00 each, five Fifth Prizes of $1,000.00 each, and fifteen Sixth Place Prizes of $500.00 each. Plus, we will award an additional five $1,000.00 scholarships to some of today's most talented young poets. We will also present Apple iPods to the runners-up in the young poet category, not to mention door prizes, including tickets to see the best shows in Las Vegas. American Idol winner Ruben Studdard will be with us to congratulate poets and present the Grand Prize.

    LIGHTS . . . CAMERA . . . ACTION!

    And that's still just the beginning . . . we've got three very special days planned for you . . . ones you'll never forget!

    **You will be officially inducted as an honorary "International Poet of Merit" for 2006-2007.

    **You and your poetic achievements will be honored at Award Ceremonies and a Gala Banquet.

    **You will enjoy dazzling world class entertainment created especially for you featuring Grammy winner Tony Orlando. These special command performances will delight you.

    **You will learn more about your craft in seminars, reading rooms, rap sessions, and workshops where you can read and discuss your poetry in informal settings with other poets from all over the world. Back by popular demand are the ISP rap rooms, our famous sunrise poetry readings, the ISP Open Microphone Rooms, and workshops on how to fine-tune your poetic talents.

    **You will have the rare opportunity to get up-close and personal with Pulitzer Prize-winning poet W. D. Snodgrass, Academy of American Poets Past Chancellor David Wagoner, Dr. Len Roberts, Dr. Herbert Woodward Martin, and other poetry celebrities who will be in attendance.

    **You will participate in a fantastic international poetry competition featuring prizes totaling $100,000.00, featuring a Grand Prize of $20,000.00 and a $10,000.00 book publishing contract.

    **You and your guests will also be eligible to win one of many door prizes, valued at over $6,000.00.

    **You will make friendships that will last a lifetime and will return home with wonderful memories, your Outstanding Achievement in Poetry Crystal Award Trophy, your Commemorative Award Medallion, and lots of other special gifts.

    DON'T BE LEFT OUT

    Don't miss this opportunity. Space is limited, and our Conventions routinely sell out. Plan to join your fellow poets in Las Vegas, Nevada, July 20-23, 2006, for the poetic event of the year! I am also looking forward to meeting you and celebrating the power and beauty of poets and poetry! Click here to register!

    Sincerely,
    Steve Michaels
    International Society of Poets
    Convention Chairperson
