A $1,000.00 grand prize is being offered in a summer inspired poetry contest sponsored by the Famous Poets, free to everyone. There are 50 prizes in all totaling more than $4,000.00. The deadline for entering is August 15, 2015.
To enter, send one poem only of 21 lines or less: Free Poetry Contest, PO Box 21, Talent, OR 97540. Or enter on-line www.famouspoets.com.
“We think the sunny (or strangely wet!) days of summer can inspire people everywhere to write a poem,” says Lavender Aurora, the organization’s Contest Director. “Our desire is to inspire amateur poets and we think this competition will accomplish that. Poems may be written on any subject, using any style. We simply hope to see poems that are inspired by the summertime world of individual people.”
Be sure your name and address appears on the page with your poem. A winner’s list will be sent to all entrants.
