Acrostic Poem Contest

     We're back to a poetry contest, so we thought it would be cool to do an acrostic poem contest. No theme, you can write about anything you want (that's appropriate) as long as it's an acrostic.

     Include "acrostic contest" in the subject line.

     Submit to

      Submissions must be attached in doc., docx., or txt format.

     You may include a short, 200 word bio, plus a picture.

     You may also include links, either in your bio or separate from them.

     Submissions must be PG-13 or cleaner.

     ALL rights remain with the creator, we only ask that we be allowed to display your poem and bio on the website and newsletter, but if you would rather we didn't, let us know in the email. It will not impact your chances of winning.

      Please do not include your name in the attached document, only in the body of the email.

     You must be the sole creator of your poem, or have the permission of all the other creators and have been an integral part of making it.

     Previous and simultaneous submissions are welcome.

     You may submit as many pieces as you'd like.

     The deadline is March 20th.

     Results will be published April 1st.

     Send any questions to I hope to see lots of submissions, we love reading your work, and even if you don't win, you have put yourself out there, which takes bravery. Trust me, I know how terrifying the submission process can be.

We have one other contest open, an art contest, which you can find here.

    Oh, I'm not a poet, but that looks like a cool contest. I hope it goes well. :)
