i am for
Poetry competition now open!
Entries are now open for the inaugural Australia reMADE poetry competition – I AM FOR.
Every day we have the opportunity to ask ourselves, what am I for? What moves me? What inspires me? What makes my heart soar? What does the Australia of my dreams look like? What brings me joy?
When Australia reMADE’s poet laureate Miriam Hechtman asked herself these same questions in regard to her hopes for Australia, she remembered a writing prompt she had been assigned in high school, quite simply – I AM FOR. The basic premise for that prompt was to write from a place of empowerment rather than just react to what is happening.
Using the writing prompt I AM FOR as your starting point we invite you to tell us through poetry what you are for.
A selection of the most moving and inspiring poems will be published online and promoted by Australia reMADE.
$100 voucher for your local bookshop!
More prizes announced soon…
All ages are welcome to enter and poems will be judged accordingly.
There will be a First Prize winner and Ten Finalists.
All entries must be submitted by 11.59pm EST, November 7.
Finalists and winner will be announced at POETICA on December 4.
