The Tucson Poetry Society Poetry Contest, 2015.
This is a “split the pot poetry contest.” The winning poem will receive half the entry fees and the rest will go to the Tucson Poetry Society to fund expenses, scholarships, and in general supporting the arts.
The theme is The Southwest. Any style of poetry will be considered. $5 entry fee per poem.

This contest is open to anyone living in the United States, or USA citizens stationed abroad.
No entries will be returned. Entries will be considered for possible publication. Permission will be requested if the Tucson Poetry Society decides to publish some of the submitted poems in a poetry book, or chapbook. Entries must be postmarked by June, 4, 2015. Winner announced on July 5th, 2015. Check to the winning entry will be mailed or delivered the next business day.
The Tucson Poetry Society is responsible for selecting the judges, and the judges will not be members of the Tucson Poetry Society. This is a fund raiser for the Tucson Poetry Society and will help their activities in supporting creative writers and poets, as well as supporting other artists. Good luck, and thank you for your participation.
