Poetry contest for Rockford residents


Write a poem and win the $1,000 grand prize! Hollywood’s Famous Poets Society is sponsoring a new poetry contest, open to everyone. There is no entry fee, and nothing to buy. To enter send one poem of 21 lines or less: Free Poetry Contest, 1626 N. Wilcox Ave #126, Hollywood, CA 90028. Or enter on-line at www.famouspoets.com.

“This is our big contest of the year,” says Executive Director Mark Schramm. “We trust our prizes will encourage new poets, even the shyest out there, to share their talent. We delight in discovering new poets and think that Rockford has its share of talent to draw from.” The deadline for entering is Aug. 9, 2002. A winner’s list will be sent to all entrants. Editors reserve the right to publish winning poems online or in a pamphlet.
