About the Competition
Booksie is looking to crown its 2023 Poet Laureate. Get your poems out and submit them to the contest.
The poetry can be of any type, length, or content, but it must be your own. The poetry can be serious or whimsical, fact or fiction, but it should strike a chord that makes us sit up and take notice. We’re looking for poems that say something and make a reader sit up and think. You may submit as many entries as you like.
- OPEN ONLY TO MEMBERS OF BOOKSIE. Not a member? Register free.
- The challenge of this competition is to write or submit an already written, original poem. The poem must be your own.
- Members may submit as many entries as they like. There is a fee of $6.95 per entry.
- Winner Selection: The editorial staff of Booksie will choose the winning entries. Sole discretion for choosing the winners rests with the Booksie editorial staff. All editorial decisions and procedures relating to this Contest are final. You can view the winners from last year.
- The judging will be done in rounds.
