Free Verse Poetry Competition 2017

Free Verse Poetry Competition 2017 has been established to encourage aspiring young poets to get recognized for their talent. We seek to award poetry that is original, creative and unique. Beginners and amateur poets are encouraged to participate.

Free Verse is an open form of poetry without any rules. Traditional poetic techniques such as rhyme, meter and pattern are not necessary. However the poet can still choose to use them to create a sense of structure. It is an experimental form of poetry many youngsters around the world use. Some of the contemporary poets who use free verse popularly are Rupi Kaur, Christopher Poindexter, Nikita Gill and Nayyirah Waheed.
