Southwest Poet Laureate Contest Information

All Southwest High writers are encouraged to submit three poems to be judged locally.  Three finalists will be selected to go on to the County-Wide judge, and a Laureate for 2021 will be selected. 

This is way more than just a poetry contest. 

This is an opportunity to connect with poets across the county at open mics and poetry workshops.  All finalists will be invited to read at the Greensboro Bound Literary Festival in May.
