$250 for winning teen (13-19) poet
POETRY CONTEST FOR TEENS AND ADULTS
The Poetry Society of New Hampshire is accepting tribute poems in honor of Charles Simic.
Tribute poetry is broadly defined as work speaking to the incredible poetic legacy of Charles Simic. Contest poems should connect in some way to Charles Simic, whether through content or form. Possibilities include poems which borrow a line, title, or image from Simic or poems which describe Simic as a poet, teacher, friend, or colleague. Include a brief statement of no more than 150 words explaining the contest poem's connection to Charles Simic.
The judge is Alexandria Peary, Poet Laureate of New Hampshire and Editor-in-Chief at Under the Madness Magazine.
This contest is open to everyone with a separate category for teens (13-19). Writers do NOT need to be a resident of New Hampshire or the United States. We welcome submissions from around the globe.
Winners, as well other submissions, of the contest will be published in the fall/winter issue of The Poets' Touchstone. The first-place teen poem will win a 250 dollar prize from the state laureate and be published in Under the Madness Magazine as well as the fall/winter issue of The Poets Touchstone.
All contest submissions will be read anonymously and identifying information should not appear in the submission.
Submissions are open now until July 30th.
