Poetry Competition: Isn't It Ironic?

Mar 18, 2023

Running from 20th - 30th of March 2023

With a chance to win $5! Write/submit me a poem with the core theme being something ironic. This can be storylike in structure (say a particular event or two of misfortune) or more abstract in a broader exploration of the theme.

I'm looking for playful poetry of any style with clever turns-of-phrase to convey a few or many of life's little ironies. Pre-writes accepted.


- 10 lines minimum

- Nothing hateful or racist

- Profanity is allowed but usually I can't take poems containing it very seriously

- No explicit sexual descriptions - innuendo is fine, don't be weird

- Double-check spelling, punctuation, and grammar before submitting. It doesn't have to be perfect; however, I appreciate neat writing as it's more enjoyable to read

- One submission per person

Head on over to: to submit an entry!
