We are happy to announce that Carroll Beauvais has won the Fifth Annual Acton Coffee House Poetry Contest, now the Acton Coffee House/Silver Unicorn Bookstore Poetry Contest! We thank all the poets who turned in work for the contest.

One of our regulars put us on to World Poetry Day, which is marked in Europe by cafes allowing poets to pay for coffee with poetry! 


We decided to combine this tradition and the U.S. tradition of April as National Poetry Month by holding a poetry contest. 


The winning poets receive a free coffee, totebag, and gift cards from ACH & Silver Unicorn Bookstore, as well as publication on our website.
