LAST CALL for POETS! Comment's second-annual "Making the most of college" poetry contest ENDS July 1st, 2010:
How does a 21st-century education lead you to respond to a 19th-century visionary? Write a sonnet which interacts in some way with Percy Bysshe Shelley's "Ozymandias"—a refutation? an update? a round of applause? Imagine the poem afresh for university students 2010-11.
Read the guidelines, then email your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org by July 1st. First-place winner takes $100 CDN and the p. 1 poem in our Fall 2010 print issue. Second- and third-place runners-up also get published later in the Fall issue. Enter today!
