Broadsheet Contest

What is a broadsheet? By definition, a broadsheet is a large piece of paper printed with information on one side only. In the world of poetry, a broadsheet is a great format in which to share or showcase one stand-out poem – winning this contest will surely do both! 

The winner of the Broadsheet contest will receive $250, publication in the 2021 Poem In Your Pocket Day Booklet, and a special broadsheet of their poem handcrafted by artist Briar Craig.
