Poetry or Verse Story Writing Contest

Contest from Children’s Writer:

The contest is for a single poem, collection of poems, or verse story for children of any age, to 300 words. Entries may be serious or humorous, and take any poetic form. Winners will be selected based on quality of verse—including rhythm, meter, word choice, wordplay, imagery, and the use of other poetic devices (rhyme, alliteration, assonance, or others). Above all, the winning entries will have appeal for young readers.

Entries must be received by October 31, 2011.

Current subscribers to Children’s Writer enter free. All others pay an entry fee of $15, which includes an 8-month subscription.

Winners will be announced in the March 2012 issue. Prizes: $500 for first place plus publication in Children’s Writer, $250 for second place, and $100 for third, fourth, and fifth places.

Now warm up your computer and write a $500-winning poem or verse story!

The contest rules are important. Please read them carefully.

  1. I used to get Children’s Writer for SO many years—maybe 17, I think? I had to cancel last year to cut back on expenses, in general. Maybe I’ll give this a shot and get it again! 🙂
