Calling all poets! The 2019 NC State Poetry Contest is now accepting entries. Deadline for submissions: Feb. 14.

The annual contest is a free literary competition open to all North Carolina residents, including out-of-state and international students who are enrolled in North Carolina universities. It remains one of the largest free-to-enter poetry contests in the South.

This year’s guest judge is award-winning poet Ada Limón and features a grand prize of $500. The contest also offers an undergraduate prize of $100 for entries by NC State undergraduates.

Winners will be announced at the 2019 NC State Poetry Contest Awards Ceremony, which will include a literary reading by Ada Limón, at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 20, at NC State’s Talley Student Union (Mountains Ballroom).

The poetry contest is sponsored by the creative writing program at NC State. For more information and to see a list of past winners, visit go.ncsu.edu/poetrycontest.
