Pen to Paper



Poetry, with its brevity, is one the most difficult yet rewarding forms of writing. The Greenwich Branch of the National League of American Pen Women, a nonprofit organization that fosters the exchange of ideas and creativity, invites writers to hone their narrative skills by participating in the organization’s national poetry contest. In the contest, which ends October 1, writers are challenged to submit original, under forty-line poems about any desired subject. Participants must be members of the National League of American Pen Women and published authors (Letters members) by October 1.

The judges, Mary Ann Hoberman, Carla Wallach and Marion White, are local authors and members of the Greenwich Branch of NLAPW. The three will choose five winners: one first place ($500 prize), two second place ($200 each), and two third place ($100 each). Each winner will have her poem featured in Women’s Voices of the 21st Century: Experiences That Shape Women, and receive a complimentary copy of the book. To submit a poem, email debweir42@gmail.com along with your name and branch. Entry fee is $10, with a limit of ten poems per participant.
