You may drop off your entries between 3:00 and 3:30 p.m. and return later to pick them up (the time will depend on how many entries are submitted).
Depending on the number of entries, the top 5 or 10 poets will be asked to perform their works for the judges.
The theme of this competition is "Living the Dream." What about life in the SCA is memorable or meaningful to you? Your poem may be up to two typewritten pages, in a 12-point font, with one inch margins all around (or two handwritten pages). Documentation, even in a short form, is requested. Poems will be accepted without documentation, but then those points will not be earned. You can request short documentation forms by e-mail or at the competition.
Please email Lady Katarzyna Witkowska, Poeta Atlantiae, if you have questions or if you would like to volunteer to judge this event.
