Seasonal Writing Challenges~Poetry Contests

Poetry is the heartbeat of The River.
The River has always been a journal of poets inside and out. A platform for the new and the already known poetic voices from around the world. Every Issue we publish two to three poets and we host poetry contests throughout the year that challenge the creative spirit of a poet.  The challenge is to write a poem to a prompt in four days. The prompts vary from photo to video. The prizes include a feature in the next issue of The River and a copy of our anthology from the previous year.

  1. Always have a special feeling when thinking of The River and the contests. The Poetry Slam of December 30, 2011 was the first time I entered a contest, let alone read one of my poems to be heard by an audience. I was surprised to begin having followers after winning. I look forward to each issue and hope that others enjoy the writing as much as I do. Charles ‘Gray Poet’ Townsend

    • Thank you Charles. That was something else that contest. Your story should be heard……… ideas are ticking and clicking. I will get a hold of you. 🙂

      • It was fun for me, my first reason to actually post a reading of one of my poems. I got so many polite responses that I kept with the blog that I had to start to enter, I’ve posted over 460 entries in the year. Thanks for the start.

We would love to hear your thoughts :)
