Prism’s Short Form Poetry Contest is Back!

Submit your poetry for a chance to be featured on Prism’s social media!


Natalie Harris, Editor

If you were following along on our Instagram last year, you might recall we started doing some short form poetry contests. We’re bringing it back this term and we can’t wait to see what you submit to us!

You might be wondering, “what is a short form poem?” It’s simple! All you have to do is write a poem in 250 characters. Try not to overthink it and just have fun! We’re all getting into the busiest time of the term, and here’s your chance to take a little creativity break.

If you need some ideas, check out our blog post with creative prompts to get inspired.

Time starts NOW! You have until February 28th at 11:59 to submit your poem. We’ll share our top 3 picks throughout March on our Instagram and Twitter (@osuprism).
