I have added some information to the contest rules on how you can post your audio or video file. Do not forget to post a link to a file. I have received a number of poems without a linked file. I will check them again, but they will not move to the next round without a recitation of your poem that I can listen to.

Contest Description

What to Submit?

Any poem of good length. At the bottom of your poem, provide a link to an audio or video file of your poem that you have posted somewhere on the Internet, such as YouTube or Dropbox. The file must be publicly accessible. An easy public file sharing service is File Dropper. You don't have to sign up or anything. You just go to the website and upload a file. It immediately gives you a link you can copy and paste.

Here's a link to a poem I recited as an example:

You may simply recite your poem or you may provide a multi-media experience. Be as creative as you like, but the vocal recitation of your poem should be the focus of your creation. Judging will be based on the total experience. Should be fun!

Add the word "- Recited" to the end of your poem's title -

Example: Little Boy Blue - Recited


First Prize, Glory

Twelve Honorable Mentions

Preparing Your Entry

Submit one copy of your poem online. Format your poem. Please make your entry easy to read — no illustrations or fancy fonts. 

English Language

Poems should be in English. Poems translated from other languages are not eligible, unless you wrote both the original poem and the translation.
