In honor of the Year of the Apocalypse, Indiana Living Green, along with the Writers’ Center of Indiana, is announcing a poetry contest. Not just any poetry contest, but a contest with a theme: the Apocalypse. Here’s the deal. You must write your poem in the style of James Whitcomb Riley. That’s right, the Hoosier Poet himself. Write in the dialect, keep to the form and rhyme about the Apocalypse, with an Indiana angle.
Send your submissions (limit two) to email@example.com.
The winner gets $250. We will print any we think are decent or hilarious. Deadline: Oct. 1, 2012; we’ll announce — and print — the winner (and many of the non-winners) in December, of course, just in time for the End Times.
