Event Details

The competition is organized by the Society of Classical Poets based in New York. The competition is open to anyone.

You may submit 1-3 poems on any topic.

Poems must contain meter (beginners and students may simply count syllables). Rhyme and other traditional techniques are encouraged as well, but not required.

The poem should be written in 2023. They may be previously published.

We are keen to encourage quality submissions, so suggest writers to check their stories before submitting using Prowritingaid. They have free and paid versions and are the best writing software we know to help improve grammar, readability and check for repetition, ‘sticky’ sentences and suggest alternatives.
