Our 2023-2024 contests begin this year with an unusual contest from Russell Strauss, which includes an opportunity to submit two poems for consideration, along with a critique of each poem a member submits. The contest is a follow-up to his May program which explored the forms.
Submit a pantoum, a Dorsimbra, or one of each. One prize winner will be selected for each form. The pantoum is an ancient Malaysian form from the 15th century and the Dorsimbra was created by three talented past PST members far more recently: Frieda Dorris, Robert Simonton, and Eve Braden.
