I am writing as a concerned citizen in regards to the annual Laguna Beach Library poetry contest.
There is a growing concern about bias and pre-selection by those overseeing.
The same contestants have won just as annually as the contest being held.
As this is a diverse and growing community of many cultures and voices, I feel that this bias towards a few is an injustice to our art-oriented community.
This contest should belong to the community not a few elite.
