I don’t know about you, but I love contests where there is a monetary prize. After all, writers have to eat, yunno? So looky here!

The New York Encounter is sponsoring its second annual poetry contest to celebrate the theme of its 2018 event, An ‘Impossible’ Unity. The Encounter’s poetry contest invites all poets writing in English to submit up to 3 poems (maximum 40 lines each), related in some way to the theme. Their guest judge the award-winning poet, Dana Gioia.

Cash prizes of $300, $200 and $100 will be awarded to first, second and third place poems. Deadline for submissions is November 7, 2017. For complete details, go here.

As always, good luck!
