A $1,000 grand prize is being offered in a spiritual/religious poetry contest sponsored by the Rainbow Poets, free to everyone. There are 50 prizes in all totaling more than $4,000. The deadline for entering is Nov. 22.
To enter, send one poem only of 21 lines or less: Free Poetry Contest, P.O. Box 21, Talent, OR 97540. Or enter on-line www.rainbowpoets.com.
“We think great religious poems can inspire achievement,” says Lavender Aurora, the organization’s Contest Director. “Our desire is to inspire amateur poets and we think this competition will accomplish that. Poems may be written on any subject, using any style, as long as there is a spiritual inference. A typical poem might be a love poem, or poem of praise, one that inspires the reader.”
Be sure your name and address appears on the page with your poem. A winner’s list will be sent to all entrants.
