Poetry Contest

Contest is NOW closed, thank you!

If you are wanting to participate in my latest End of Summer Poetry Contest, click here!


Are you a poet? Do you enjoy writing poems until your heart is sore or until it soars?

Well, I happen to LOVE reading poetry so I would like to hold a poetry contest! Read the rules and prizes below!


  • To be eligible for this competition you must be subscribed to my page (i.e. following and receiving emails.) Not subscribed yet? No worries! Go to my home screen and click FOLLOW (I’ll receive a notification when you do :D)
  • Leave your poem or a link to your chosen poem in the comments below.
  • I will be using a point system to chose the winner:
    • You will receive 5 points automatically for subscribing (everyone must subscribe to be eligible)
    • You will receive another 2 points for sharing the contest on your your own blog and linking back
    • Your poem will be rated on a 1-10 scale based on creativity, structure, content, and overall awesomeness. While we are near the holidays, you do not have to write a holiday poem (although you are welcome too as well!)
    • Technically someone can still win without sharing my contest, but sharing would provide additional points for any poems that are tied.
    • Because of the expected high volume of submissions, please keep your poem at a reasonable length. For sure no poems 3 pages +. If you have any questions regarding length, feel free to ask in the comment section!
    • You can only submit one poem per blogger.
  • Last date for submissions is November 20th!


  • The WINNER of this poetry competition will received two things
    • FIRST, their poem and their blog/bio will be featured on my site. This will be a great chance for you to get some publicity on another bloggerโ€™s site.
    • SECOND, they will receive a copy ofย The Dazed Starling. This journal contains poetry and short stories (one of which is mine!)

Dazed Starling

So get writing, because I cannot wait to start reading!

  1. How do you know when you’re too much in love?
    I’d cross that line for you baby.
    In sunsets golden and pinkish red
    Far past the horizon, where I see your deep
    Desire to know what lies beyond this
    Line we have fabricated.
    I’ll cross that line for you.

    How do you know when the moment is right?
    I’d cross that line for you baby.
    In the held breath before the drop
    Of the beat that pulses in our hearts,
    Frozen in the inbetween of
    Terrified and satisfied.
    I’ll cross that line for you.

    How do you know when you’ve found the one?
    I’d cross that line for you baby.
    Over wide oceans and tall mountains
    Of which our love may span
    When the sight of your eyes
    It makes my heart jump and fall.
    I’ll cross that line for you.

    Thanks so much for hosting this contest!

      1. You are most welcome! I had no idea which one to pick as I like them all for different reasons. However, i selected The Poetry Cycle because I think most people will be able to connect with it. I look forward to reading the other submissions ๐Ÿ™‚ Cheers!
