PSI Members-Only Annual Spring Fling Poetry Contest
Each year as part of our Spring Fling event, we offer our paid members the opportunity to compete in a members-only poetry contest. The winners are announced during our annual Spring Fling event. The contest is judged by PSI's Premier Poet.
The 2022 PSI Members-Only Spring Fling Poetry Contest was an Ekphrastic contest that included an Image submissions portion and then the poetry submissions portion.
Congratulations to Nancy Simmonds, Winner of our
2022 Spring Fling PSI Members-Only Ekphrastic Contest
Ekphrastic poems explore, engage with, and describe a painting, drawing, sculpture, or other form of visual art.
