2011 Poetry Contest - Prize: $1000

For the first poetry contest, we are proud to announce Rose Solari as the judge. Ms. Solari is a poet, writer, and teacher. She is the author of two full-length collections of poems, Orpheus in the Park and Difficult Weather, as well as two chapbooks of poems, Selections from Myths & Elegies and The Stolen World. Rose authored and performed in the multi-media play Looking for Guenevere, an Arthurian retelling, and is currently at work on a historical novel. In 2010, she co-founded Alan Squire Publishing. She’s also a longtime faculty member of the Writer’s Center in Bethesda, Maryland, and is in her second term on the Board of Directors there.

As with everything SFWP does, this is about the community effort. We look forward to getting this program off the ground, and will increase the grand prize amount based on response.

The 2011 Poetry Program will be managed similarly to the 2011 Literary Awards. Read the general guidelines and FAQ’s, and we prefer that you submit your entry online.

We will be accepting poetry of any genre, regardless of the subject matter. There are no page limits, and no restrictions on collections, long form poetry, short works, etc. This will be a free-form contest open to all.

Stay tuned to our blog as the program develops.
