Attention, local poets: Read your poem on TV
Poetryfest.TV is videotaping segments for their upcoming poetry show, “Upstart Crow,” and the top poets in their Free Poetry Contest, open to everyone, will be invited to participate. There are 100 prizes in all, totaling $5,000. Grand Prize is $1,000.
To enter, send one poem of 21 lines or less to: Free Poetry Contest, 1638 Dogwood, Ackworth, GA 30102. Or enter online at Poetryfest.TV. The deadline for entering is Dec. 20, 2014. A winner’s list will be sent to all entrants.
Says Contest Director Dr. Marcus Mellon, “This is a real opportunity for poets to win cash prizes and to gain recognition for their effort. I know this contest will produce exciting results! And – as always – help Poetry, the Cinderella of the Arts, find her glass slipper.”
