Contest Description

Fot this contest I am asking you to write a respectful poem about a nun bearing the name Dorothea, meaning "gift of God". That phrase, but without quotation marks, has to appear TWICE (and no more) in the poem.  Take care as to how you place these insertions so as not to appear that you are obeying an instruction.

My example, written on 5/17/2020, is called "A Roman Vision".

What to Submit?

One original FREE VERSE poem on the theme of a nun with the name Dorothea.


First to Third Prize, Glory

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.
