Welcome to a new year of contests! We’re starting this year off with a challenge to write us a love poem. Brush off your poetry-writing skills and sweep us off our feet.
Love comes in many forms, and we’ll accept poems about any kind of love. Whether you want to express your feelings toward your significant other or expound on your love for your pet, we are excited to read your poems. You only get one entry, so make it a good one!
2 Runners-up: $25
Final Submission Due Date
You must enter your submission to the form below by 8 a.m. MDT on Friday, February 21.
Announcement of Winners
We will announce contest winners on the blog on Tuesday, February 25.
You can use any poetry form you like, but keep your submission to no more than 50 lines single-spaced. We won’t accept poems that are longer than this.
We’ll judge submissions with three criteria in mind:
- How well does the poem fit the subject of love?
- How evocative is this submission? Does it express itself and make us feel something?
- How well is this submission written? Is it polished, clear, and grammatically correct?
Submit your poem below!
