Margaret Reid Poetry Contest

Posted on May 30, 2008


Submit poetry in traditional verse forms. What are traditional verse forms? By traditional verse, we mean any form of poetry that has been in circulation for 50 years or more. The poems you submit should follow some kind of formal or informal pattern. This pattern might involve rhyme, meter, length of line, repetition, or some other pattern, strict or loose.
