Transcript Poetry does not pay Poetry, some say, like crime, does not pay. Marty McGovern, 23, Honors Program creative writing lecturer and poet, might disagree. He entered a poetry contest sponsored by the cultural Arts Council of Houston and won $3,600. McGovern, who teaches an honors literature course and off-campus poetry courses, said that $3,000 of the prize money has been awarded. The council is holding the remaining $600 until he performs some community service project, a contest rule requirement. "I think what I'm going to do is collect clothes and toys and children's books and take them to the Star of Hope Mission," McGovern said. The two major themes of the 15 pages of poetry entered in the contest were love and death, he said. McGovern described his writing style as being primarily lyrical. But, he said, "I change off. Some of them are traditional style like off-rhyme and rhyme — kind like of like W.D. Snodgrass. The rest are free verse." Jean Kwan, a spokeswoman for the Cultural Arts Council, said that at least 90 Houston-area authors entered works, from which six winners in various categories were chosen. She also said that the entrants had to have lived in the Houston community for two years prior to the contest and must have had two works accepted for publication in other than undergraduate literary magazines to be eligible. McGovern has had poems and articles published in the Poetry magazine, Kenyon Review, and his favorite of those entered in this contest — a poem entitled "Rainbow Diary" — will appear in The New Republic. Kwan said the contest judges were three noted au thors; David Bradley, a novelist from Philadelphia; Eleanor Langer, a biographer anc journalist from Portland Ore.; and poet Naomi Nye o San Antonio. The winners were recognized in an announcement and reading at the Museum o Fine Arts, followed by a reception at the River Cafe. McGovern, who earned a doctorate in English here in 1986, said that he did not know of any undergraduates who entered the contest. He also said that he is pleasec that Houston has a group providing money for creative writing. A different medium is chosen for the contest each year Kwan said. "This year the creative artists' program was in literature. Next year it wil be in the visual arts." — Michael A.
