A call for poems


A $1,000 grand prize is being offered in a special religious poetry contest sponsored by the New Jersey Rainbow Poets, free to anyone who has ever written a poem. There are 50 prizes in all totaling almost $5000.00. The deadline for entering is Feb. 9, 2002.

To enter, send one poem only of 21 lines or less: Free Poetry Contest, 103 N. Wood Ave., PMB 70, Linden, NJ 07036. Or enter on-line www.rainbowpoets.com.

“We think great religious poems can inspire achievement,” says Frederick Young, the organization’s contest director. “Our desire is to inspire amateur poets, and we think this competition will accomplish that. Illinois has produced many wonderful poets over the years, and we’d like to discover new ones from the Rockford area.”
