Arts Hey Poets—Sharpen Your Pencils!
posted by March 29 at 14:51 PMon
This just in.
We are looking for creative writers who like to write poetry and would like to see it published.
I work for DiamondSafe which is now holding its first poetry competition for Mother’s Day. We are awarding a grand prize of a diamond pendant worth $1,600, plus we will be publishing the top 5 winning poems on our web site.
Go here to enter your poem into a web form. The instructions are, um, not exactly intricate:
1. Write a short poem.
2. Include the word ”Diamond” or ”Diamonds”.
3. Submit your poem.
It’s free, there’s no entry fee, and you can enter as many poems as you want before May 1. I really, really want some great Seattle poet to win this thing. Heather McHugh? Joshua Beckman? Anna Maria Hong? James Arthur? Rebecca Hoogs? Frances McCue? Shannon Borg? If you’re reading Slog, you have a couple extra minutes. Just go toss something into that web form. Anything at all. Look what you win:
I think that’d look really nice on you, Joshua.
