Those 19 or older who have a disability and live in the Phoenix area or one of Phoenix’s nine sister cities are eligible for the fourth annual Phoenix Sister Cities International Competition for Writers with Disabilities. The deadline for submitting entries is May 3.

Cash awards of $500, $300 and $150 will be granted to the first, second and third place winners, respectively. Poems must be written in English, no longer than 32 lines and inspired by the theme “Hope Sees the Invisible and Achieves the Impossible.” Each writer may submit multiple entries. The entry fee for residents is $15.

A panel of judges will evaluate the entries based on theme interpretations, composition and originality. All entrants will receive a certificate of participation and trophies will be present to the three top winners. Poems will be published on the Phoenix Sister Cities website. An awards ceremony to recognize the competition winners will be at 7 p.m. June 14, at Luci’s Healthy Marketplace, 1590 E. Bethany Home Road.

Phoenix’s nine sister cities include Calgary, Canada; Catania, Italy; Chengdu, China; Ennis, Ireland; Grenoble, France; Hermosillo, Mexico; Himeji, Japan; Ramat-Gan, Israel; and Taipei, Taiwan.
