July Poetry Contest
|Deadline:||Jul 31, 2008|
Our last few contests have been relatively structured—we've asked for submissions that fit a particular mold. So for the July contest, we decided to go with the laid-back spirit of summer and let everyone do their own thing (well, sort of).
The July contest is a poetry contest with a very broad theme—and when we say "broad," we mean it. The theme is "questions," and we'll accept any kind of poetry you can throw at us. Free verse, sonnet, epic, haiku, or clerihew... show us what you've got, but stick that theme in there somewhere! Oh, and there's a maximum of 1000 words—because sometimes brevity is the soul of wit.
Pretty simple, huh? We want to see what your creative brains and mighty pens can come up with!
Winners have been announced! Log in to see them.
|1st prize:||$50 Amazon.com gift card|
|2nd prize:||$25 Amazon.com gift card|
Your entry must be a poem of any kind involving the theme of "questions." Your poem must have a maximum of 1000 words (as counted by us).
Entries must be received by July 31, 2008, and winners will be announced on August 7, 2008. Scribophile staff reserves the right to disqualify any contest entry for any reason and to change the terms of the contest for any reason.
Entries will be judged by the Scribophile staff, taking into consideration the ratings given by Scribophile members. Decisions are final.
Only one entry is allowed per member. Multiple entries will all be disqualified.
To enter the contest, post your work on Scribophile and tag it with "july contest" (without quotes). Your work will automatically be considered.
