The last day to submit entries for the Summer 2008 Science Poetry Contest is August 15. The competition looks fierce, but one lucky poet/visual artist will be winning the $150 first-place prize. Two runners-up will also be published and (this is new) receive a $25 prize.
All rules are posted on the contest page. Winners will be announced on August 30.
If you miss this deadline, don’t fret. The next poetry contest will run from Jan 1. through Feb 15. Any contestant who isn’t picked can always enter again.
