YoungPegasus_200w (1)
For more than 80 years, the San Antonio Public Library has celebrated the talents of the city’s young writers with the Young Pegasus Poetry Competition.
Open to poets 18 and under, the Young Pegasus Poetry Competition invites poets to submit their work, which is then reviewed by a panel of independent judges. The judges do not select a set number of winners. Instead, any poem submitted that is deemed worthy of publication is printed in the annual Young Pegasus Anthology.

Selected poets are invited to attend an awards ceremony in the spring where they receive an award certificate and a copy of the year’s anthology in which their work appears. The selected poems are read aloud during the ceremony, either by the poets themselves or a member of the judging panel.
