LSPS offers two poetry contests every year (Spring and Fall) with monetary     prizes and publication in the anthology, Lyric Louisiana.

This year’s Fall Festival contest theme is ‘Louisiana Alliteration.’  Do not let the theme fool you, poems do not have be chock full of alliteration, the category titles just are.  The categories also give you the option of two subjects.  Use one or both in your creative flow!

 *The postmark deadline for entries is Sept. 23, 2018
