Ekphrastic Poetry Contest

Rattle, a poetry magazine, has opened an online contest for what is now a monthly ekphrastic poetry writing contest. What’s ekphrastic poetry? It’s any poem written in response to a piece of artwork from another medium.

For September, the artwork that must inspire the poem is “Moon Risen” by Sarah Oyetunde


The deadline for entries is September 30, and the top entries will be published and will receive $25. For more information about the contest, go to Rattle.com

Good luck! And keep up with other poetry contests by checking out the Writing Contests wall in the English hallway.
