board of ten poets from across the globe will select approximately 80 poems for

great chance to have some of the world's most experienced and active poets read
your work. For those among you who are already established, this is an excellent
opportunity to call attention to your latest efforts.

a poem of no longer than 40 lines. The deadline is May 15 but get your poems in
before March 31 and the entry fees are lower. This year’s prize judge is Don
