The Amelia Poetry Award for emerging young women – submission deadline
September 30, 2018
Because they love promoting, celebrating and sharing your stunning poetry, Our Storymakers is inviting young women from around the world to enter The Amelia Award for Emerging Young Women Poets.
Our Storymakers named their new writing award after Amelia Earhart, a woman who defied expectations of her time. You may have known that Amelia was the first woman to fly a plane solo in 1932 across the Atlantic Ocean, but did you know that she also wrote poetry? Storymakers wants to honor a woman who actively changed the perception of what it means to be female. She showed the world that anything is possible and they want to celebrate her feisty, inspiring spirit.
Judges for the inaugural prize are Natalie Appleton and Kerry Gilbert.
