(YorkPedia Editorial):- Culver City, California Dec 6, 2021 ( – On September 20, 1917, Harry Culver received his City Charter for Culver City, marking a momentous day in history. In honor of the city’s one-hundredth birthday and its centennial celebration on September 20, 2017, Dr. Janet Hoult, Culver City’s Honorary Artist Laureate for Poetry, organized a Centennial Poetry Contest to provide an opportunity for people to express their love for the city in a poetic format. The poetry collection reflects the sentiment of Culver City’s residents and visitors alike and conveys their deep love for the beautiful city.

Echoing the thoughts in the foreword by former mayor Paul Jacobs, Dr. Hoult, the editor of this book, remarked that “Poetry is a universal language and a beautiful way to express your emotions and thoughts when simple words can’t seem to do them justice. It allows the author to paint a picture in the minds of readers and help them find their inner voice.”

“With this collection, I wanted to bring forth the love people have for this city and how, over the years, it has only grown by leaps and bounds.” Dr. Hoult further added.

Memorable lines from Dr. Hoult’s poem “Word Painting” reflect her profound connection with words:

                                        Words that the poet finds

                               Paint clearer pictures in our minds

                          Word choice makes mental pictures lush

                            Words are the paint, the poet the brush


Outskirts Press published the book on April 25, 2018. All proceeds from the sale of this book go to the Culver City Historical Society.
