End of Summer Poetry Contest

Please read this fun summer-theme poetry activity. You have a chance to win a prize. Submit by August 31, 2018.


Hello Everyone, it’s time to do this again!

Are you a poet? Do you enjoy writing poems until your heart is sore or until it soars?

I’ve held a poetry contest once before and I absolutely adored it! It was a blast and I got to meet tons of amazing poets and bloggers. For my current followers, you may have noticed an influx of poetry appearing on my own blog lately. What can I say, it’s simply flowing out of me! Anyhow, I am so excited to hold an “End of Summer Poetry Contest.” Unlike my first Poetry Contest, this contest is themed!

*Please be sure to read all of the rules, otherwise your poem may not be eligible!*

Each week, I like to highlight a poet who I call the Poet of the Week, who has shared an exceptional message, or shown an impassioned creativity through words or form. Poetry is all about perception, so don’t be shocked if you don’t feel the same way about a poem that I do. ❤


This week, I’ve chosen as the Poet of the week, Miriam Hurdle, from her blog, theshowerofblessings.wordpress.com.
