Amanda Williams wins Aphra Behn Poetry Contest

Amanda Williams has won the Caffeine Theatre’s fourth poetry contest. The contest, titled “Golden-Pointed Darts, Or, a Contest in Poesy to Honour the Incomparable Astraea and Other Adventuresses, Spies, Writers, and Thespians,” considered poems inspired by or in conversation with the life or work of Aphra Behn. Amanda’s poem “Sometimes I Acted Backstage Too” was chosen unanimously by the judging committee and will be performed at the Aphra Behn Coffeehouse in November.
