Society of Classical Poets Translation Competition
Deadline December 31 (must be received by this date). Neutral free contest gives $100 and web publication for a metered translation of a poem from the Romantic period or earlier. Send 1-3 poems, maximum 108 lines total, by email. Previously published work is eligible. Translation must have been completed in the current calendar year. The Society of Classical Poets is a group of poets "dedicated to the revival of rhyming and metered poetry of good character". Classical poetry, as defined by the contest sponsor, "carries a message infused with the profound insights and lofty character of the poet...and touches on humanity's quintessential quest for virtue over vice, epic over ephemeral, and beauty over baseness".
