Contest Description

What to Submit?

1 original, poem dedicated to a friend on a special occasion.

Poets have been composing lines to celebrate landmarks in the calendar and their friends lives for centuries. Cheesy - yes sometimes - but they can be charming and heartwarming as well.

Birthday

Graduation

Firsts

Weddings

Engagements

Holidays

Sympathy

Get well

Other achievements


I think rhyme gives the greeting card impression best. Couplets, triplets, quartets, quintets, sextets, sonnets all acceptable - simply mark them as "verse".

Prizes

First Prize, Glory
Second Prize, Glory
Third Prize, Glory
Twelve Honorable Mentions
