Christmas Poem Competition Entry 2019



It’s the season to be jolly. So how would having an extra $100 in your back-pocket help? Or if you are more altruistic how would donating $100 to your chosen charity sound? Fortunately, if you win the latest Poem Analysis competition you don’t have to choose. We are offering one lucky person a cash prize plus a hundred dollars dedicated to the charity of their choice.


How to Enter the Competition

All you have to do to in order to have a chance at winning the prize is submit a poem by commenting below with your name, email address and poem in the comment section at the end of this article.

Be sure to also like our page on Facebook and follow us on Twitter and Instagram! If you’re feeling extra generous, you can also share this page too to share some of the holiday spirit!

The poem must be no more than 36 lines long (That’s enough to write a Sestina, a sonnet, a triolet and countless other forms – although a traditional form is not a requirement).

In addition to the cash prize the chosen poem will also feature on the Poem Analysis website and be analysed by one of our team of experts in poetry. Our website has more traffic than a busy highway on a summers day, so if you’re an aspiring poet it is a fantastic opportunity to share your work with a huge audience.


Theme of the Poem

The theme can be on the holiday season, of giving, love, family and everything great about Christmas. But this doesn’t have to be a Christmas poem, it can be about Hanukkah, sleeping rough during the winter or bemoaning the fact that everybody is stoked about time off when you have to work! (sorry retailers)

Of course, you could submit a cheeky three line haiku, there is no lower word limit, but why not wow us with your best efforts?


Closing date of Competiton

The closing date is the Friday 20th of December. We look forward to reading your poems and will have our full team vote for the best poem.


Happy holidays!
