We are happy to announce the 1st Annual Memorial Day Poetry Contest. We’re on the look out for poems of all styles – rhyming, free verse, haiku, and more – to be featured on our site as the 2014 Memorial Day Poem of the Year.

All entries must be received by Friday, May 22nd. Simultaneous submissions are allowed, but all work must be original and not previously published.

The author’s name, email address, and telephone number, in addition to the title(s) of the poem, must be clearly noted and provided in the form below. Due to the number of submissions, we cannot respond to each writer individually. The winning author will receive an acknowledgement via email or phone.
