Spirit First is pleased to announce its 6th annual meditation poetry contest. Poetry submissions may be of any length and any style but must have a theme of Meditation, Mindfulness, Silence, Stillness, or Solitude (referring to peaceful solitude - not loneliness). Poems may reflect any discipline, any faith, or none. Poems must be previously unpublished.
First Prize: $200
Second Prize: $150
Third Prize: $100
Enter up to three submissions. Sending more than three poems will lead to those poems being disqualified.
There is no cost to enter this contest. Submissions must be received no later than January 31, 2015.
Winners will be announced no later than April 30, 2015, on the Spirit First website. Winning poems will be published on the Spirit First website and the Spirit First blog, and in a Spirit First newsletter (authors retain full rights to their poems).
