Poems sought from area poets


Wonderful news for poets and aspiring poets. The Texas Poetry Alliance is offering a $1,000.00 grand prize in their annual poetry contest. There is no entry fee, and everyone is invited to submit a poem.

“Our goal is to encourage new talent,” says Poetry Director Larrie Green. “In a world where poetry is the Cinderella of the Arts, we are helping poets find their glass slipper. Poems may be written on any subject and using any style. I’m believe Rockford has some outstanding poets.”

To enter, send one poem 20 lines or less to: Free Poetry Contest, 3412-A Moonlight Ave, El Paso, Texas 79904. Or enter on-line at www.freecontest.com.

The deadline for entering is April 26. A winner’s list will be sent to all entrants. The editors reserve the right to publish the winning poems.
