Dallas Writing Project is proud to announce that we will be hosting our first poetry competition for the DFW metroplex. This event is designed strictly for high school students, and all competitors must live in the DFW area. There is no charge or fee for writers to enter, and cash prizes (as well as other awards) will be given to the top winners of each age bracket. The competition is broken into two phases. The first round is open to all writers, and submissions are due by April 30, 2022. Throughout May, judges will review all poems and select 10 writers from each age bracket to advance to the second and final round. Selected finalists must be available to perform their second poem in person at a live event in Dallas this summer. For more information, explore the documents below, click the chat box, or email us. Good luck!
