Caribbean Magazine Plus Poetry contest

The Caribbean Magazine Plus (CMP) and Arawak Media is launching its 3rd annual poetry contest, 2023 and is endeavouring to double the number of participants and finish strong with another book of poetry. In a release, CMP said “We want more entrants from the Spanish, Dutch and French speaking Caribbean”.

The contest is being held over a period of three months, May 9 to August 25, 2023. Poets are invited to submit their entries on Caribbean Magazine Plus at:

Contestants will be allowed to submit their poems in any of the four languages, English, Spanish, French or Dutch, however if submitting in a language other than English, the English transcription should be attached on the same script.

CMP said this year will be different for two reasons the first being “that we will be allowing for different groups to be able to enter the contest at a lowered price.”

Organisers said part of the proceeds will go towards the Bahamas Children’s Emergency Hostel, “our charity of choice”.

This year’s contest lead evaluator will be poet, performing artist and educator, Malachi Smith. Persons who wish to enter works in the contest can contact Arawak Media.
