Poetry Competition 20/03/2023: Isn’t It Ironic?

Poetry Competition: Isn’t It Ironic?

Free Entry
20th to 30th of March 2023

$5 Cash Prize to the Winner
Pre-Writes Allowed

Competition Details

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.

Entry is free and the winner will receive a cash prize and a feature on the website.


  • 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 entry per person

I am ACCEPTING SUBMISSIONS UNTIL THE 30th of March 2023 or until a certain number of valid submissions are met. I aim to have the contest judged within a week of the closing date.

*Submissions done through AllPoetry.

**Prize paid out through PayPal or Revolut.
