Enter The Malahat Review’s Twitter Monostich Contest!!
To celebrate the launch of our Twitter feed (@malahatreview), we’re holding a Twitter Monostich Contest.
The contest begins on Monday, June 18, 2012, and closes on Monday, September 10, 2012.
Beginning on Monday, June 18, send your one-line, 140 character (or less) poems to us via Twitter @malahatreview.
Enter as many times as you like, but each monostich must only be tweeted ONCE for the duration of the contest.
We’ll collect and judge the monostiches, then award a prize of four new books (donated by Canadian publishers) every two weeks until September 10th (prizes will be awarded July 2, July 16, July 30, August 13, August 27, and September 10).
On October 1, a grand prize will be awarded to the best monostich, chosen from the six bi-weekly winners.
The grand prize winner will receive a copy of Sandra Djwa’s biography of Malahat contributor, P. K. Page, Journey with no Maps: A Life of P. K. Page (McGill-Queen’s), due out in October; Anne Szumigalski’s A Woman Clothed in Words (Coteau), and Peter Sanger’s John Stokes’ Horse (Gaspereau); as well as a complimentary one-year subscription to The Malahat Review.
All winning monostiches will be tweeted, posted on our Facebook fanpage, and on this web page.
For tips on how to write a good monostich, see:
A monostich is a single-line poem. Therefore, any entered monostich that indicates linebreaks with slashes will be disqualified. If you have a title for your monostich, put it in ALL CAPs.
The Malahat Review thanks the participating publishers for their generosity and continued support.
