From our friends at the Spring Pulse Poetry Festival:

Established in Cobalt Ontario in 1970, it's one of Canada's oldest national poetry contests. The Drummond Poetry Contest honours the memory of William Henry Drummond (1854-1907), "Canada's first national poet and literary superstar" as well as doctor and silver mine owner in the Cobalt area. His poetry was included in many anthologies through the years including: The New Oxford Book of Canadian Verse (1982).

The Drummand Poetry Contest features $1000 in prizes, an anthology, a new trophy, and award ceremony at the Spring Pulse Poetry Festival in Cobalt on Friday May 13.

Deadline for entries 2011 March 28. More info:
