little infinite Poetry Writing Contests
Everyone has a voice. Everyone has a story. And at little infinite, we believe in uplifting those voices and celebrating those stories. It’s time for you to join the Li Squad and share your voice by entering a poetry writing contest this month!
We are calling all writers and poets to join our poetry writing contests to share their voice on our platform and maybe even win a prize or two!
Whether you’ve never written a poem, or you’ve got dozens scribbled on little pieces of paper hiding in your desk, it’s time to share with the world! Our writing and poetry competitions are the perfect place for beginners and experienced poets alike!
Each year, we host multiple poetry writing contests that feature a different theme so there is truly something for everyone! And you’re an artist, right? Not feeling the theme? We love a good healthy dose of literary interpretation.
All our poetry writing contest winners are chosen by the little infinite audience! That’s right! Our online voting means even the humblest poet gets a chance to share their unique story and showcase their writing skills. You might even be a winner and get published on our site! So, what are you waiting for? Check out our upcoming contests and start writing for one of our poetry prizes!
Not a poet or having a bout of writer’s block? No problem. Even if you don’t write poetry, voting gives you the chance to interact with and encourage new and upcoming poets.
Reflect on the year through poetry. What personal growth did you experience? What hardships have you conquered? What accomplishments did you celebrate? Share your reflections (21 lines or fewer) of 2023 and win!
Enter for a chance to win a $150 Visa Gift Card, be featured on littleinfinite.com, and little infinite’s social channels!
