Poetry In the Plaza


8th Annual Poetry Contest

George Green, 8th Annual Poetry Contest Judge

Manhattan, Bronx and Staten Island-based poets, we have some great news for you! Due to strong interest from poets in these boroughs, the Village of Great Neck Plaza has expanded its submission rules to allow poets in these areas to submit their poetry as part of the Plaza's 8th Annual Poetry Contest! Now through Wednesday, February 7th, poets from Nassau, Suffolk and the five boroughs can submit up to three original, unpublished poems to be considered for the grand prizes. The poems may be on any subject, in any style, must have a title, and must not exceed more than 30 lines per poem. We also ask that poets type their poems in single-space format. Additionally, poets must include two copies of each poem, one anonymous and one with the poet's name and address below the poem. A cover sheet listing the poet's name, address, phone number and email address, and title of each poem, must be included as well when submitting an entry. A non-refundable submission fee of $15, payable by check or money order, to Long Island Traditions must be included with your poetry submission.

In conjunction with Carolyn Raphael, VGNP's Poetry Coordinator, we are pleased to announce George Green will be contest judge for the upcoming poetry contest. A professor at Lehman College (CUNY) in the Bronx, Mr. Green is a renowned literary instructor and author. The recipient of an award for literature from the American Academy of Arts and Letters in 2014, Mr. Green also won the New Criterion Prize (2012) and the Poet's Prize (2014) for his book of poems, Lord Byron's Foot. His work has appeared in various journals and anthologies, including Poetry 180, The Swallow Anthology of New American Poets and The Best American Poetry 2005 and 2006.
