Reykjavik Pride’s poetry competition

Are you a closeted poet? Do your writings crave to see the light of day? Now it’s the right time to open up and participate in Reykjavik Pride’s yearly poetry competition. Queer writers, despite their experience, are encouraged to submit their poetry and by so further strengthening our already rich queer culture.

A jury of three will review all submissions and select the winners, but all submissions remain anonymous (even to the jury) until the winners have been selected. The results will be announced at Reykjavik Pride’s “QueeReads” on Friday 5 August where the winning poems will be performed and their authors will be rewarded by Reykjavik Pride.

– Send us your poetry to before July 31st
– The submissions can not have been published before
– Each poet may submit three poems. Please keep all the poems in the same Word document
