The Statewide Poetry Contest is a celebration of poetry writing in Alaska and invites participation from writers of all ages, elementary school and up. With a reading in April, during National Poetry Month, the contest aims to encourage, publicize and reward the writing of high quality poetry in our great state.
Winners of the contest, who will be announced in late March, will receive an invitation to share their poetry during a reading alongside other poetry contest awardees and will record their poems with KUAC for broadcast on channel FM 89.9.
