Wattpad sponsors poetry contest

From the press release:

Do you have a poem pacing about in the confines of your computer or your mind? Is it wild? Gentle? Hilarious? Tragic? Insane? Serious? Abstract? Concrete? All of the above? Or is it something completely different? Submit it to Wattpad and you may get published! Be sure to include the tag poetry contest.

The winners will be determined by Frontenac House.

Submissions must be original, in English, and may not have been previously published anywhere else. Contest deadline July 31, 2010. Winners will be announced on September 15, 2010.

The year 2010 marks the 10th anniversary of Frontenac House and the Quartet poetry series. To celebrate, Frontenac extended its usual quartet to ten books - Dektet 2010 - released this April.

But that's not all. Frontenac has joined forces with Wattpad to create *Extravaganza!*, a unique poetry competition that invites young poets from all over the planet to upload and share their best poem.

The winning poems will be published in *Extravaganza!*, a Frontenac House poetry book to be released towards the end of 2010. The book will be published in digital formats as well as a limited edition print version.

About Nate Hoffelder (11590 Articles)
Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
