Test your skill and talent in the art of traditional poetry in this monthly contest.



"Poetry is the rhythmical creation of beauty in words. ~Edgar Allan Poe


Do you love writing rhyming poetry? Poetry is the music of the heart and soul. Through the use of lyrical words and a steady rhyme and meter we sing their melody. As poets, we are students of language and strive to turn those silent notes into words. It is our passion and our art.

Can you compose a symphony? Can you make us dance to the beat? Rhyme and meter are two of the basic building blocks upon which many other poetic devices are built. And they can be difficult to master. This contest will focus solely on traditional poetry using meter and/or rhyme. It is through those devices that we begin to feel and hear the beat of the poetic heart.
