The Poem of Hope
Poster Contest

We live in a world where hope often seems to be in short supply. For the New Year, Musehouse is calling for original poetry that will inspire hope and transcend despair.

Send us one to three unpublished poems of a maximum of 25 lines each that have a powerful message, metaphor or image of rebirth, optimism or possibility.

The winning poem will be printed on a beautiful four-color poster with artwork by Philadelphia artist Anthe. The winning poet will receive $200 and 5 copies of the poster.

Judges for the contest are Philadelphia-area poets Theresa Leo and Joanne Leva and the artist Anthe.

Please send your poem(s) with name, address, phone and email in upper right-hand corner, along with the $10 reading fee by check or money order, payable to Musehouse, to:
