PORT ST. LUCIE --

Dorothy Kamm, a local writer and public relations professional, was awarded second place, which includes a cash prize, for her poem "Light" in 26thannual poetry contest sponsored by the Portland Branch of the National League of American Pen Women.

"The poem presents a strong visual of what victims of the Holocaust experienced," said Ms. Kamm. "I focused on the theme of light because of its properties of illumination, offering hope yet exposing lies. Ultimately, those who perished live on as light-filled spirits."

According to Doreen Gandy Wiley, contest co-chairwoman, the judges were impressed by Ms. Kamm's concise, original treatment of a difficult subject.

Ms. Kamm has been a member of the National League of American Pen Women in the art category since 1989 and in the letters category since 1993.

She has won numerous awards for her poetry, articles and books in competitions sponsored by this organization.

Founded in 1897 and based in Washington, D.C., the NLAPW encourages, recognizes and promotes the production of creative work in arts, letters and music. Its membership is comprised of professional artists, writers and musical composers.
