This is it! The cruelest month is almost over. You’ve only got a short time left to enter the National Poetry Month Contest!
Prompt: The Academy is spending April celebrating the role of correspondence in poets’ lives and work. So here on Figment, we want you, in 250 words or fewer, to write a poem in the form of a letter.
Prize: One grand-prize winner will receive a Moleskine notebook, a copy of Letters to a Young Poet by Rainer Maria Rilke, and a custom-created print with a line from their winning poem, from the DomesticNotions etsy shop.
The entry period closes THIS Tuesday, April 30 at 11:59 p.m. ET. It’s not too late! Write a poem already!
