The North Carolina Poetry Society holds poetry-related contests and gives away several awards each year, for both Adults and Students (which includes 3rd Graders all the way to University Undergraduates).
We have single-poem contests each year; for more information about our assorted Adult Contests, please click here to go to the Adult Contests page.
Also, new for 2014, the Lena M. Shull Book Contest is open; if you have an unpublished manuscript of a poetry book, submit to this contest! Click here for the Lena Shull Contest Guidelines.
