Previous Contests

The Gifted Penman's Haiku Contest

Haikus may be shorter than most other poems, but that doesn't mean they're any less profound. The winners of this contest are living proof of the age old "quality over quantity" adage. Though their words may be few, their works are rich and act as a canvas for the brilliant ideas of their creators.

The First Annual Gifted Penman's Poetry Contest

We began our journey in 2018 with this contest. Needless to say, it was an absolute success! Our annual contests have no restrictions—no set theme, no set genre, no word limit. In short, anyone can enter. This is, of course, to level the playing field and give any and all poets the chance to make themselves heard. That being said, we will continue in this effort and look forward to the many years of poetry contests to come.
