Institute of Children's Literature Poetry Contest

Posted by Sally Clark on Saturday, January 17, 2015
Institute of Children’s Literature Poetry Contest
 
The rewards are publication, cash prizes, winners’ certificates, and valuable training in disciplined writing.
 
Writing to an editor’s specifications is the first hurdle that any writer must clear on the track to publication. Yet we hear repeatedly from editors that the majority of manuscripts they receive do not match their guidelines and specifications. That’s a huge waste of time and energy for both writers and editors. Writing contests also have exact specifications, and that’s why we encourage all writers to enter contests as often as they can. Contests are excellent professional training experiences. A winning entry can get you published, and often some healthy prize money too. The winning entries in this Poetry Contest will be announced in a March eNews newsletter. In addition, we will publish the winning entries our website.
 
The contest offers five cash prizes: $500 for the winner, $250 for second place, and $100 for third, fourth, and fifth places. These alone are a lot of good reasons to write and enter.
 
To enter our Poetry Contest, submit a single poem, collection of poems, or a verse story for children of any age, up to 150 words. Entries may be serious or humorous, or take any poetic form. Winners will be selected on the quality of verse—including rhythm, meter, word choice, word-play, imagery, and the use of other poetic devices (rhyme, alliteration, assonance, or others). Above all, the winning entries will have appeal for young readers.
 
Entries must be received by February 14, 2015. All entries pay a reading fee of $15, which includes a six-month subscription to Children’s Book Insider newsletter and a six-month membership in the writer’s community CBI Clubhouse. Winners will be announced in a March eNews newsletter.
 
The contest rules are important. Please read them carefully here - http://institutechildrenslit.com/online-contest-rules.htm
