Submissions Closed on Feb 28, 2022
Inspired by Wordle, the word-game craze making a pandemic February slightly more tolerable, we’re seeking submissions of six-word poems, one word per line. Words may be any number of letters in length.
To submit a poem, you must be a member in good standing of the Writers’ Federation of Nova Scotia. You may submit more than one poem, but you must submit each using a new entry form. All submitted poems must be original and unpublished. There is no entry fee.
After submissions close, five poets will see their best submitted poem published in Subtext (our weekly member newsletter) and will each receive a Micro-poem Giveaway prize pack:
- a Poetry in Motion postcard set
- a copy of Promptly: a miscellany of writing tips & tales from Nova Scotian authors
- a copy of Alison Smith’s This Kind of Thinking Does No Good (Gaspereau Press, 2018), finalist of the 2020 Lieutenant Governor of Nova Scotia Masterworks Arts Award and winner of the 2019 J.M. Abraham Atlantic Poetry Award
