$1,000 Scholarship

T. S. Poetry Press is committed to helping people experience “poetry for life.”

Poetry may already be a part of your life, and if it is, this scholarship might suit you. A one-time award of $1,000, you can use it to pursue any major. Apply as a high school senior or up through your sophomore year in college. U.S. citizens only.

Deadline for submission is November 30, 2017. Scholarship winner will be announced in spring of 2018. Your entry, whether or not it becomes the winning entry, may be featured here or at Tweetspeak Poetry.

What you’ll provide along with the application:

1. Four of your original poems, of any length

2. One short piece describing how you came to be involved with poetry, about 50-250 words, using any voice and writing style

3. One short piece describing your “poetry writing process”, about 50-250 words, using any voice and writing style

Entries will be judged by the editorial staff of T. S. Poetry Press—for their originality, technical facility, and strength of voice. One scholarship will be awarded, but more than one entrant’s poems and vignettes may be featured on our website, with appropriate credit given. The Press reserves the right to award to students whose background is a fit with our core business values of “smart, fun, life-giving.”
