GWW's TRICKS Poetry Writing Contest: Enter by 10/20/09
Life—and love—can turn on a dime.
Gotham has teamed up with Ellen Hopkins and Simon & Schuster publishing for a truly unique poetry competition - The Tricks Poetry Writing Contest. Writing in verse, Ellen Hopkins deals with tough subjects—addiction, abuse—in her books and her latest, Tricks, is no different.
Now it is your turn to write about a tough subject or trying life experience—real or imagined—spun into four to eight stanzas of verse.
Ellen Hopkins will read the entries and the author of her favorite entry will win a free six-week online writing class from Gotham Writers’ Workshop. Ellen will also post the winning entry on her website, EllenHopkins.com. The winner and ten runners-up will also receive a personalized copy of Tricks signed by the author. There is no entry fee and no purchase is necessary. You can even enter online below. Entry deadline is October 20, 2009.
