Poetry Contest: $500 for Best Student Poem!

Happy memories of springtime daffodils? Brooding lines about “The dew that flies/Suicidal“? Sugary fluff that cools the longing for wordplay? Creepy verbal portraiture?

We love it all.

That’s why the GW English Department is pleased to announce our first annual Student Poetry Contest. Anyone can enter, and the prize (generously donated by a departmental supporter) is an astonishing $500.

RULES: Poems are judged anonymously. Students should submit one poem, no more than 200 lines long. A separate cover sheet should include the author’s name, the title of the poem, GW ID number, and contact information (e-mail and phone). The student’s name should appear only on the cover sheet.

Submissions should be turned in to the English Department office, Rome Hall 760, by noon on Friday March 27.
The contest will be judged by English Department faculty.

Happy writing!
