Win cash for your best poem

By From page B2 | August 07, 2013

A $1,000 grand prize is being offered to the last poet standing in a free contest sponsored by the Famous Poets. There are a total of 50 prizes totaling more than $4,000 in cash and book prizes.

Poems of 21 lines or fewer on any subject and in any style will be judged by the contest director Lavender Aurora. “I encourage poets (even if you don’t consider yourself a poet, if you’ve written one you are to me!) to send in the poem they’re most proud of,” she said. “I know this contest will produce exciting discoveries!”

Entries must be received by Aug. 31, and may be submitted by mail to: Free Poetry Contest, PO Box 21, Talent, Ore. 97540. Or enter online at famouspoets.com.

Those mailing their entries should include their name and address on the same page as the poem (those free mailing labels work great for this) and the poem should be typed or neatly written. A winners’ list will be sent to all entrants.
