We’ve mentioned it before, but Potomac Review is publishing the winning poem from Split This Rock Poetry Festival’s Poetry Contest. Split This Rock has extended the deadline until January 22nd. First place is rewarded $500; 2nd and 3rd place, $250 each.
It’s a great festival that highlights the roles poets can and do have in social change. The past winners of the poetry contest (which you can see here and here) have been beautiful poems first and foremost, but with a social aspect to them as well.
Winners also receive free admission to the festival and will read their winning poem at the festival. This is a great opportunity to be published online and in print, receive free admission, and read your work to an eager audience.
