A $1,000 grand prize is being offered to the last poet standing in a free contest sponsored by the Celestial Arts Society.
There are 50 prizes totaling $5,000.
Poems of 21 lines of fewer on any subject and in any style will be judged by the contest director Dr. James Cameron. "I encourage poets to send in the poem they're most proud of," he says. "I know this contest will produce exciting discoveries!"
Entries must be received by Aug. 20 and may be submitted by mail to: Free Poetry Contest, P. O. Box 3336, Central Point, Oregon 97501. Or enter online at www.freecontest.com.
Those sending entries should include their name and addresses on the same page as the poem. A winners' list will be sent to all entrants.
