Captivating poems sought in free contest


The Friendly Poets Society is offering a $1,000 grand prize in our latest poetry competition, free to everyone. There are 50 prizes in all worth almost $5,000. The contest is seeking poems on any subject, using any style, with any creative, artistic theme.

“We are looking for poems not of any particular theme or subject matter but rather those that capture the imagination with their creative eloquence,” says Contest Director Ms. Lavender Augulis. “We hope to reach poets who might otherwise have considered their poetry too avant garde to enter into a contest.”

To enter, send one poem 21 lines or less to: Lavender Augulis, Poetry Contest, 838 Wymount Terrace, Provo, Utah 84604. Or enter online

The deadline for entering is March 4, 2002. We reserve the right to publish winning poems online. A winner’s list will be sent to all entrants.
