It’s the season for spring flowers in Vancouver, and the birds outside our window are singing their poetry to the beat of the wind in the trees. (Our apologies to the rest of Canada.) At Pulp Literature, it’s the season again for poets to submit their best works to our Magpie Award for Poetry, with final recognition given by Vancouver’s first poet laureate, George McWhirter. Last year’s entries were inspiring, and the winner received $500 in addition to publication. Our contest is open until April 15th, and we challenge you — no, we double dare you — to make us cry, laugh, or revel in the awful beauty of this temporary condition called life.
Earlybird entry fees are in effect till March 15th. Submission guidelines here.
