Contests - Submissions For Spring & Fall Writing Contests
PSSC has two rounds of poetry contests each academic year, Fall and Spring.
Prize-winning poems are published on this website and in the Poetry Society of South Carolina Yearbook, published annually since 1922 and now distributed to libraries of SC schools and universities, as well as to the membership.
"I love what syntax can do in a poem, its ability to indicate not just sequence but also hierarchy and relationships, its role in manipulating the rhythm and pacing. Syntax is truly like a conductor leading an orchestra."
