Children's Writer Seasonal Poetry Writing Contest

Posted by Sally Clark on Sunday, September 8, 2013
Children’s Writer Seasonal Poetry Writing Contest  

Seasonal Poetry is the theme

Poetry for kids is greatly loved by readers, writers, editors. But editors receive lots of slapdash, weak poetry submissions. Enter this contest to win, but also to hone your skills, build your writing confidence, and further your work as a children’s poet.

The theme for this contest is verse about the seasons or holidays. Would a haiku for children be a strong entry for you? Make sure the number of syllables and imagery work and appeal to kids. How about a silly poem in the spirit of Shel Silverstein or Dr. Seuss (in your own voice!)? What about a traditional limerick for kids (There was an old man with a beard...). How about your unique version of verse storytelling, à la Jack Prelutsky? Be original but use your best poetry skills. And have fun: Editors and readers (and contest judges) can tell when you do.

Entries must be received by October 31, 2013. The first contest entry is free to Children’s Writer subscribers who include their account number on page one of their manuscript. All others pay an entry fee of $15, which includes an 8-month subscription. Winners will be announced in the October 2013 issue. Prizes: $500 for first place plus publication in Children’s Writer, $250 for second place, and $100 for third, fourth, and fifth places.
