Celebrating NZ Poetry Day with a Competition

COMPETITION

Send us your sci-fi sonnets, your fantasy free verse, your horror heptameters – it’s time for a poetry competition!

NZ Poetry Day is coming up on 22 August, so get writing – you have until 15 August to send us a poem. The rules are simple: your poem must have a spec fic theme; it must be under 30 lines long; and you have to send it to specficnz.fiction@gmail.com with ‘Poetry Competition’ in the email header.

First prize $30, second and third prizes $10 each. All three placed poems will be published on the SpecFicNZ blog on 22 August to celebrate NZ Poetry Day.

Terms and conditions

Competition is open to current, paid-up members of SpecFicNZ only. Judge’s decision is final. Entrants accept that if their poem is selected as a winner, it will be published in full on the SpecFicNZ website and archived there indefinitely.
