Submit Your Poems to the 2019 NC State Poetry Contest
The annual NC State Poetry Contest is a free literary competition open to all North Carolina residents.
Upcoming: Pulitzer Poet Yusef Komunyakaa
Pulitzer Prize winning poet Yusef Komunyakaa served as this year’s judge for the NC State Poetry Contest. The contest — considered one of the largest free poetry contests in the southeast — yielded 636 entries this year. When Komunyakaa visits NC State on April 6-7, he will announce the contest winners, visit with students and hold a public reading of his own poetry.
