Poetry Contests

In addition to the winning poems from contestants, this book also publishes six new poems by the Chief Judge, John Howard Reid, and seven new works by the Associate Judge, Professor Dee C. Konrad.

One of Reid's poems is a humorous look at a "Shopping Mall", divided into five cantos of sorts. The first complains of shopping mall muzak:

........................... I complain to

management. No Vivaldi

Bach or Tchaikovsky,

Beethoven, Handel

or Mendelssohn?

Management is

sympathetic. The

customer is always

right, whether pudgy

and pugnacious or starry

haired and silver-eyed. "It'll

soon be Christmas, sir," he says.

I'm amazed! Christmas is seventeen

months away.................................................

.....He stares at me as if I were now suddenly

unwelcome: a disgruntled employee, a policeman,

or worst of all, a tenant!


Excerpt

I notice on page 5 that the cash money awarded in 2005 for both The Annual Margaret Reid Prize for Traditional Verse and The Annual Tom Howard Poetry Contest for Verse in All Styles and Genres amounted to $3,500.

That prize structure has been increased in 2008 to no less than $5,250 for both contests, yet the entry fee remains pegged at $6 for every 25 lines. (There are no limits on the length or the number of poems that an entrant may submit).

Closing dates remain as stated on page 5 of this anthology of winning works, namely June 30 for the Margaret Reid Prize and September 30 for the Tom Howard Contest.
