Contest Description

What to Submit?

Please submit one original poem--old or new*--on the theme of NEW

YEAR. Your poem can be about 2018, another specific new year, or

new year(s) ​in general. Your poem should be between 12 and 20

lines and must ​have a set rhyme scheme. I do not read entries till

the submission period is OVER, so you can make changes at the

​last minute.

​*One stipulation: If you enter(ed) Kim Rodrigues's current New

Year contest, do not enter the same poem in mine. Thank you.




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.
