This poetry contest serves to reveal talented poets around the world – and celebrate their talent in comedy and humor. All you have to do is compose a 250 word poem, either in gibberish or english and submit it by the first of April to win this poetry contest. Anyone of any gender, ethnicity, religion, age, are allowed to apply to this poetry contest – minus people of North Korea, Syria, Iran, and Crimea due to US government regulations. Not only is the poetry contest free to enter, it also allocates grants ranging from $2,500 to $100 to a dozen participants. The results will be announced mid-August. Moreover, as an established contest with over 20 years of literary cred, the poetry contest offers a great network- building opportunity for all entrants, and some great exposure to winning poets by publishing their work.
