Three Grand Prizes will receive $100 each plus their poems will be costumed, danced, and filmed. Many smaller prizes. All winners will receive a prize certificate suitable for framing. You may submit up to 10 poems, with a limit of 38 lines per poem.
See video and pictures from our Dancing Poetry Festivals that show the vast diversity of poetry and dance we present each year. For poetry, we look for something new and different including new twists to old themes, different looks at common situations, and innovative concepts for dynamic, thought-provoking entertainment. Please do not feel constrained to submit a poem about dancing. We look forward to reading your submissions. See the complete contest rules.
