Third Wednesday One Sentence Poetry Contest

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.

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 Septeber 1 to November 30, 2018 though our Submittable account. No email or paper submissions will be considered.
