Contest Description

Please note:  Only those who received a Soup Mail from me confirming that they are a 2019 Poetry Marathon Qualifier may enter this contest.  This contest is for the 2019 Poetry Marathon Contest confirmed qualifiers and will determine their final, overall placement in the Marathon.  If you received a Soup Mail from me confirming that you are a qualifier, then you may enter.  Be sure to check your Soup Mail if you haven’t already.  Please do not enter this contest if you did not receive a Soup Mail from me.  If you have any questions concerning this, please Soup Mail me :)    

A Note to Confirmed Qualifiers:

If you’ve received a Soup Mail from me notifying you that you qualify to enter this contest, congratulations!  Your final placement will be determined by 1) Your final poem’s ranking, and 2) Your overall performance in the marathon. 

To enter the FINAL Contest, confirmed qualifiers will need to do the following:

1. Choose and submit a poem from any of YOUR poems that placed in any of the 2019 Poetry Marathon contests. Only YOUR poems that have already placed in the 2019 Poetry Marathon contests will qualify to be submitted. DO NOT change the poem’s title. The title of the poem must be the same as when it placed. DO NOT SUBMIT A NEW POEM.  From YOUR poems that have already placed, choose the poem you feel will do best to maximize your final placement. For example, you might decide to choose your poem that placed the highest (1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc.). 

2. At the bottom of your poem please list the date, contest name and sponsor name. Here’s an example: 4/3/19 / 2019 Poetry Marathon Final Placement / Sponsor: Mark Toney

3. Your poem must not exceed the maximum 30 lines.

You’ve already done the hard part. You’ve qualified to enter the FINAL contest. What will be your overall placement? Remember, your FINAL placement will be determined by 1) Your final poem’s ranking, and 2) Your overall performance in the marathon. 

Feel free to contact me with any questions. Remember the #1 rule of marathoners—Finish!

Cheers!
