 Contest Seeks Spiritual Poems

   Great news for poets. The Texas Poetry Alliance is offering a $1,000.00 grand prize in their annual spiritual poetry contest open to the public. There is no entry fee and everyone is invited to submit a poem.

   "Our goal is to encourage new talent," says Poetry Director Larrie Green. "In a world where poetry is the Cinderella of the Arts, we are helping poets to find their glass slipper. Spiritual poems, which may be written on any subject and using any style, tend to inspire the reader, thus our desire for entries of a spiritual nature."

   To enter, send one poem 20 lines or less to: Free Poetry Contest, 3412 -A Moonlight Ave, El Paso, Texas 79904. Or enter on-line at

   The deadline for entering is January 18. A winner's list will be sent to all entrants. The editors reserve the right to publish the winning poems.
