For the fourth year, we're happy to let you know that the Charm Poetry Competition is back. Our principles remain the same: we're a competition for the lighter side of poetry. We noticed that prize-winning poems are usually on serious subjects. Free-form poems are more common than traditional structures, and rhyme is rare. We’d like to change some of that.
So entertain us. Brighten our day. We like warmth, wordplay, wit and whimsy. We believe it’s possible to write a good poem that conforms to these guidelines, and we'd like you to prove us right.
So take a break from the tinsel, sharpen your pencil, and start writing - you can find links for how to enter to the right of this page.
