Attic's 50/50 Poetry Contest

Those interested in submitting to our contest should send poems (no more than 30 lines) and a reading fee of five dollars per poem.  There is no limit to the number of poems you can send.  The winner will receive publication and half of the reading fees collected. All entries will also be considered for publication in ATTIC.  The remaining proceeds will help cover printing costs. For the purpose of the contest, writers should not include names or personal information on each piece entered. Instead, list all personal information and the title of each piece entered on a separate cover sheet. Checks should be made out to MSP&LS. Send entries to the address above, but label as a 50/50 Contest entry.  All entries should include a SASE.  The contest deadline is June 1, 2006.
