2018 Poetry Prize Twitter Contest #IRSpring

The 2018 Poetry Prize is open until March 31st! For this Twitter contest, we’re asking you to Tweet us a haiku about spring. It’s a subject that’s been visited by lots of poets…How will you make it new? If you’re unfamiliar with the form, a haiku is a “Japanese verse form most often composed, in English versions, of three unrhymed lines of five, seven, and five syllables. A haiku often features an image, or a pair of images, meant to depict the essence of a specific moment in time” (Poetry Foundation). Be sure to hashtag your poem with #IRSpring. Entries are due by Sunday, March 18th.

2018 BLB Prize Twitter Contest #IRBlueLight

The 2018 Blue Light Books Prize for a story collection is open until February 9! For this winter’s Twitter contest, we’re asking you to feature the prize’s namesake. In 280 characters or less, write a story that includes a blue light. Maybe it’s a set piece, maybe it’s the main character, maybe it’s the hinge on which the whole daring narrative turns. That’s up to you. Be sure to hashtag your story with #IRBlueLight. Entries are due by Friday, January 26.

Example Tweets:

  • That morning the sun rose blue, dousing the town in an aquarium glow. While our parents watched the weather report and fretted, we embraced our new roles, and flopped on our bellies like beached fish. #IRBlueLight
  • When I’m in new groups–for a job, a class, whatever–& that superpower question that always comes up comes up, I just stare at the light bulbs overhead, change them white to blue. At this rate, I’ll end up in a room with somebody who can change them back. #IRBlueLight
