Check it out! The Maine Poets Society has announced their 2019 poetry contests! http://ow.ly/DV7L50kapno So get excited, and get writing (which you can always jump-start at our Writers Group, which is meeting TOMORROW at 5:30)! And feel free to share your poems with us - we'd love to see them! See contest details below:
All Maine residents (including seasonal residents) are eligible to enter, with a $100 prize poem contest and a second $50 prize contest for poets who have never been published (newsletter or online workshop publications do not count for this). There is a $5 entry fee for the $100 prize contest and a $2.50 fee for the $50 prize contest, with a maximum of 4 entries per person (each with its own entry fee). Winners will be published in the Maine Poets Society's newsletter, Stanza! Just mail two copies of your poem (one with name and contact info, including mailing address, email, and phone, and one without any personal identifying information) to MPS President Jenny Doughty, at 31 Rustic Lane, Portland, ME 04103 and mark your envelope CONTEST. Include a check payable to Maine Poets Society with "contest entry" on the memo line, and be aware that entries will not be returned to you. Good luck!
