Poetry Awards

The Poet’s Billow offers three awards: The Atlantis Award for a single poem, the Panagaea Prize for a series of seven poems, and the Bermuda Triangle Prize for three poems on a theme.

We choose from these awards our nominations for the Pushcart Prize, Best of the Net Anthology, and The Best New Poets Anthology.

The Atlantis Award

he Atlantis Award is given to a single best poem. The winning poet receives $250 and will be featured in an interview on The Poet’s Billow web site.

The Pangaea Prize

The Pangaea Prize is awarded for the best series of poems ranging between two and up to seven poems in a group. Judging will be based on poems as individual entities as well as their cohesiveness – that can be in terms of common themes, images, narrative or however else you would like to group your poems. All poems must be previously unpublished.  There are no restrictions to length or style.

The winning poet receives $100 and will be featured in an interview on The Poet’s Billow web site. The winning poems will be published and displayed in the Poet’s Billow Literary Art Gallery. Finalists will also be considered for publication. Pangaea Prize Guidelines.

Bermuda Triangle Prize

The Bermuda Triangle Prize is given to three poems on a theme from up to three different poets.

We are open to interpretations on the theme. It is up to you how literal or abstract you would like to play on the chosen theme.

Each winning poem will receive $50, for a total cash prize of $150. The poems will be published and displayed in the Poet’s Billow Literary Art Gallery. Up to five finalists will be considered for publication. Bermuda Triangle Prize Guidelines.
