Third Wednesday One Sentence Poetry Contest


Friday, November 30, 2018



Entry Fees

$5, but each person who enters will receive a PDF copy of the contest issue (a $5 value).


3 Prizes of $50


Whether it’s an American Sentence, Haiku(ish) or just a great poetic sentence, we want to see what you can pack into the basic building block of literature, the sentence. Visit our website to see examples of winning poems.

The Simple Rules:

Each poem should have a title and should consist of a single English sentence with conventional punctuation. There is no limit on length.

You may include up to 3 one sentence poems in your entry, which must be a single spaced .doc or .docx file. Do not include any identifying information within the body of the document. Multiple entries are allowed.

Entries will be accepted from September 1 to November 30, 2018 though our Submittable account. No email or paper submissions will be considered.
