Author's Den Creative Writing Club Poetry Contest April 2012 RulesDocument Transcript
Author’s Den National Poetry Month Competition RulesRules, options, and other dry stuff: 1. Poem must be entirely submitter’s own work. Plagiarism is not cool! 2. Submit poems with author’s name and contact details on entry form please; do not put your contact information or name on the actual copy of your poem. Contact details can be one’s phone number, or one’s first period teacher. 3. Poems may be submitted anonymously, but the contact details must be clear (phone # would be good) if you want us to award you the prize, and not a random stranger. 4. You may submit ORIGINAL poems that you did for school. We know how it is. 5. Poems will be judged by student amateurs with no rubric. We will look for “the rightest words in the rightest order”, as James Dickey once said. 6. There is a limit of three to the number of poems one author can submit. Sadly, we can only make time to read three poems from each person, but we like poems. More is better! 7. The decision of the judges is final. 8. Teachers and members of the Author’s Den club, you may submit for your own enjoyment, but not for prizes. Thanks for understanding. 9. By submitting poetry, you agree to these terms.Thanks! Looking forward to your submissions!-Adam Geller, Vice President of The Author’s Den, Creekview’s Creative WritingClub.If you have any questions, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.orgNational Poetry Month School competition sponsored by The Author’s Denwriting club.
