|Organization||The Nick Blatchford Occasional Verse Contest|
|Due Date||February 28, 2020|
|Description||This contest is for poems written in response to an existing occasion, personal or public, or poems that make an occasion of something ordinary or by virtue of the poet's attention. We are interested in light verse and in verse more sober, in the whole spectrum of tones and occasions. A $1000 top prize will be awarded for one work of occasional verse (no word limit). An additional $1000 will be distributed as the judges fancy. All entries will be considered for publication in The New Quarterly.|
