Poetry contest offers B&N prize

The deadline is fast approaching for the Fall for the Book Poetry Contest, which offers a first prize of a $50 gift certificate to Barnes & Noble and second and third prize memberships/subscriptions to The Writer’s Center and Poet Lore Magazine, co-sponsors of the contest along with Fall for the Book.

The deadline is September 30, and the guidelines are simple: write a poem of 60 lines or less in which you incorporate a quote from one Fall for the Book 2009 author into the poem. Email your poem as an MS Word attachment (.rtf or .doc) to fftbcontest@gmail.com and include your name, contact information, and source of the quote in the body of the email, but leave your name and contact information off the actual poem. Submissions will be read anonymously.
