Oprelle “Matter” Poetry Contest
Deadline: October 30, 2021
"Several members of the Winning Writers community have done well at Oprelle, most notably our former contest judge Ellaraine Lockie, winner of Oprelle's 2021 Poetry Masters Contest. I encourage you to enter!" —Adam Cohen
Something of substance for really great writers! Any topic or style is welcome.
Even though this anthology will be called Matter, all that is expected is that your poetry reflects emotions and thoughts coming from the depths of you. You need not write about a particular word. We just want you to know that your talent with words can matter to others.
Submit 3-40 lines in any style, on any topic. Fee per entry: $15. The winners will be announced on November 20, 2021.
1st Prize – $300 and prime 2021 Matter anthology placement (back cover). Free copy of anthology and a featured position for a minimum of one week on Oprelle's website.
2nd Prize – $200 and prime 2021 Matter anthology placement (first page). Free copy of anthology.
3rd Prize – $100 and prime 2021 Matter anthology placement (last page). Free copy of anthology.
Finalists (up to 150) will receive publication in Matter and a free digital copy.
