Fifth Annual Spirit First Poetry Contest
Deadline: January 31, 2014
First Prize: $175
Second Prize: $125
Third Prize: $75
Spirit First is pleased to announce its Fifth Annual Meditation Poetry Contest. Poetry submissions may be of any length and any style but must have a theme of Meditation, Mindfulness, Silence, Stillness, or Solitude (but only peaceful solitude, not loneliness). Poems may reflect any discipline, any faith, or none. Poems must be previously unpublished.
Enter up to three submissions. Sending more than three poems will lead to those poems being disqualified.
Please submit your poems by email unless you do not have access to the Internet. Poems will be accepted by U.S. Postal Service for those who do not have Internet access. All others are requested to be emailed. Poems sent by U.S. Postal Service will not be returned. Poems must be received by January 31, 2014.
Please submit your poems all in one file or inside the body of an email (rather than three poems in three separate files). Be sure to include the author’s name, address, telephone number, and email address. There is no cost to enter this contest. Submissions must be received no later than January 31, 2014.
Winners will be announced on or before April 30, 2014, on the Spirit First website at www.spiritfirst.org. Winning poems will be published on the Spirit First website and the Spirit First blog, and in a Spirit First newsletter (authors retain full rights to their poems).
How to submit:
By email: send to firstname.lastname@example.org.
By U.S. Postal Service (for those without Internet access): send to the following address:
