“Up Here” magazine is now accepting entries in their third-annual Robert Service Poetry Contest.
Participants should send their rollicking, rhyming poems about the north, capturing the spirit and style of Robert Service, by July 1. Poems must be 500 words or fewer and must be original and unpublished. Poets may submit up to three poems.
The winning poems will be published in an uncoming special issue of “Up Here.” The winning poet gets $750; the runner-up, $250.
Published in Yellowknife and celebrating 29 years of publication, “Up Here” was named Magazine of the Year by the Magazine Awards foundation in 2010.
