PRLog - Dec. 30, 2012 - (West Palm Beach, FL – December 26, 2012)  Two major cultural festivals will be held in Palm Beach County during the month of January 2013.

Palm Beach Poetry Festival
January 21-26 in Delray Beach
The ninth annual Palm Beach Poetry Festival is returning to the Delray Beach Center for the Arts at Old School Square, featuring eight of America’s most gifted poets, including Billy Collins, former U.S. Poet Laureate, and Tracy K. Smith, the winner of the 2012 Pulitzer Prize in Poetry.

“In addition to serving the writing community through our professional workshops, the Palm Beach Poetry Festival will once again offer numerous opportunities for the public to hear truly great poetry, written from and for our time, read by poets who engage and enthrall the audience,” said Miles Coon, the Festival’s founder and director. “Our poets are a diverse group, ethnically, demographically and aesthetically.  When people hear them, they will hear America singing.”

Tickets are available through the festival website (www.palmbeachpoetryfestval.org) and at the Crest Theatre Box Office at the Delray Beach Center for the Arts at Old School Square.  General Admission ticket prices per event are $15/adult, $12/senior and $10/student.  Special student group rates are available.

FOTOfusion
January 22-26 in West Palm Beach
The 18h annual FOTOfusion will offer more than 100 workshops, lectures, panel discussions, multimedia presentations, portfolio reviews, hands-on computer classes, demonstrations, and photo shoots taught by an impressive faculty of industry leaders and photographic giants who donate their time and expertise to educate, mentor and encourage creativity among participants of all levels and ages. FOTOfusion bills itself as “where creativity and technology fuse,” and it attracts participants from around the globe.
   
Among the events and activities scheduled for FOTOfusion 2013 are Portfolio Reviews by 100 Experts, Mini FOTOshoots, Seminars & Panel Discussions, Hands-on Computer Labs, Multimedia Presentations, Photography & Digital Art Exhibitions and 21 Community Presentations given by world-renowned photographers.

One highlight of the upcoming FOTOfusion will be the presentation of the prestigious FOTOmentor Award to Bill Eppridge, a Life Magazine staff photographer during the golden era of photojournalism when the big picture publications supported numerous pages of great photography. In addition to the award, Mr. Eppridge’s work will be featured in this year’s FOTOmentor Exhibition.
