Poetry Society of Indiana's Annual Poetry Contest
Each year, the Poetry Society of Indiana hosts a poetry contest that includes several categories. The top three placings in each category are published in the annual editions of PSI's Ink to Paper anthology at the end of the year.
The flat submission fee, which entitles entry into any and all categories, is $10 for PSI members and $15 for non-members.
We offer two versions of the official contest information. One is a simple multi-page document which should be easily viewed on-screen, printed for your convenience, or passed along via email to other individuals. The other is for printing and distributing as a tri-fold brochure. Please feel free to print copies of either to give friends and acquaintances, or to display/share at public places like libraries and coffee shops.
If you have questions about the contest, please feel free to contact us at email@example.com.
