This weekend San Antonio's young poets will be recognized at the 85th annual Young Pegasus Poetry Awards ceremony, scheduled for 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, May 15, at the Hermann Sons Grand Lodge, 515 S. St. Mary's. This year more than 2,000 poems were submitted for consideration, with 71 poems by 61 young authors - ranging in age from 6 to 18 - selected for publication in the 2011 Young Pegasus Poetry Anthology. Those lucky enough to attend will hear these creative young writers read their own poems aloud.
