E-mail your poem (no more than 30 lines) to the following address: tapestryofbronze@yahoo.com

Do NOT e-mail any ATTACHMENTS! Paste the poem into the e-mail instead. Don’t get fancy with your formatting – pretty pictures and peculiar fonts are distracting and may irritate the judges. Please limit your creativity to your poem.

MAKE SURE your poem is about Athena / Minerva.

Please include your real name, and your alias if you have one. Make sure we can respond to your e-mail.

If you are an adult (18 or over), simply indicate that you’re an adult!

If you are are under 18 please include your birth date. If you are under 13, then we need the permission of your parent or guardian. So, when you send us your poem, please also include their e-mail address too. (If your age is 13 to 17 you may get parental permission but we don’t need it.)

Entries will be evaluated by the owners of the Tapestry of Bronze and additional experts at their discretion. No cost to enter, but each contestant can only enter once, so take time to make your poem your best!

The first prize winner in each age group (“Under 18″ and “18 and Over”) will receive $50. Honorable Mentions may be awarded as well, but without cash prizes.
