THE MOST IMPORTANT PIECES OF INFORMATION IN A NUTSHELL:

  • You can submit one poem per language, written in a language other than your mother tongue
  • The best 3 poems will be selected per language by a committee, consisting of a CAW teacher, a student and an alum. A Readers' Choice Award will also be given in every language.
  • A small prize and certificate given to the best 3 poems per language and the Readers' Choice Award winner
  • We are planning to send out a call to the community in January to submit visual art inspired by the poems and have an exhibition from the winning poems and the paintings, posters, videos, etc.
  • We are looking for students and alumni to sit on the committees. If you are interested, are into poets and are fluent in a language, contact us. If you sit on a committee, your name will be posted on our web page.

Write a poem in a language other than your mother tongue and enter the CAW Poetry Contest!

 

All poems submitted to us will be published on this website with a pseudonym.  In every language the 3 best poems will be selected by a committee and 1 poem will receive the Readers' Choice Award per language. Winning poems will be published on a separate page, already with the name of the poet. This page, as well as the page listing all entries will remain available for the long-term. (Further details are available Contest Rules and Regulations)

We are also looking for students and alumni to sit on the committees selecting the winning poems. If you would like to join one of them, contact us at poetry_contest@ceu.edu
