Doorways Poetry Contest

This month Doorways Magazine will be featuring Michael Arnzen's poetry along with an interview with the horror writer/poet and Seton Hill professor. The magazine is also running a poetry contest. The deadline is this Sunday, January 21, 2007 (sorry for the late notice).

Guidelines from Poetry Editor Stephen M. Wilson:

DOORWAYS POETRY CONTEST #1: What I'm looking for are 8-line acrostic
poems using 'doorways'. Each line must start with the letters from 'doorways' in order:

D
O
O
R
W
A
Y
S

(can use caps or lower case interchangeably)

The winning poem will appear in issue #1 of Doorways (the featured poet for this issue is Michael A. Arnzen).

The winning entrant for contest #1 receives:

* Publication in Doorways (plus contributor's copy)
* $10
* Four signed books from Featured Poet, Michael A. Arnzen: Freakcidents (lettered-winner of the Stoker Award), Gorelets, Chew (first poetry collection), Psychos (first poetry anthology edited by Arnzen).

To Submit: Paste poem(s) in the body of an email, hit return once and put (END), hit return 10 times and put your name, byline (if different), mailing address, and email address.

The reason for this formatting is that the contest will be blindly judged and I want enough blank space between the end of the poem and the author's name to keep it blind. For this reason, please DO NOT include an intro letter or bio (if your poem wins, I will contact you for a bio).

You can send as many entries as you wish, but send each entry in a separate email.

Mail entries to: DoorwaysPoetry@yahoo.com
with "DW Contest Acrostic" in the subject line.
The deadline for contest #1 is Jan 21st, 2007.
