2-Day Poem Contest registration deadline
April 16, 2021
This annual contest challenges you to write an original poem in 48 hours — with only one catch. The final poem must include ten words provided by CV2 Contemporary Verse 2 – The Canadian Journal of Poetry and Critical Writing. These words are released at midnight CDT on Friday April 23rd, 2021, leaving you 48 hours to use each of them at least once in an original poetry composition. Prizes include cash, publication, and a copy of the issue containing the winners, not to mention a whole weekend of wordy entertainment.
