Contest Winners 2021

The winners of our 2021 contests were announced at our recent winter quarterly meeting and appear on the “Contests” page of this website.  Congratulations to all the winners!  Your digital prize certificates and prize checks are on their way.

Reminder:  The annual contests of the NFSPS (National Federation of State Poetry Societies), with which we are affiliated, are open until March 15.  You can find the contest brochure here.  PLEASE notice contest #6, sponsored by the Georgia Poetry Society.  We encourage our members to enter the contest we ourselves sponsor.

Reach of Song 2022 Submissions

Submissions are now open until March 1 for the GPS annual anthology, The Reach of Song.  This anthology features the winning poems from our previous contest cycle as well as member poems of excellence.  To that end, member submissions are selected by an external judge for the Member Excellence Prize on a first, second and third place basis.

You may enter your poems by email by sending them to EditorROS@georgiapoetrysociety.org.   Please send no more than TWO poems.  Poems must be previously unpublished and be no longer than 40 lines.  Any form, any theme.  Further specifications are found on the contest tab of this website.

GPS is once again in search of the editor(s) to assume the production and publication of our annual publication, The Reach of Song anthology of contest winners and member contributed poems.  If you have previous editorial or self-publishing experience and would like to volunteer for either of these tasks, please indicate that to President@georgiapoetrysociety.org .  Decisions on candidates are made by the Board.  Contact the President with any questions.
