IWA 4th Annual Poetry Competition

As Salaamu Alaikum and Greetings of Peace:

In April, I wrote
here about the Islamic Writers Alliance 4th Annual Poetry Competition.

The entries have now been put up online
here for public voting!

Yes! That means you! You get to vote for the winner of your favorite poem!

Don't forget to check back to see who won.

Jazaka Allahu Khayr for supporting our project.

Thanks Mezba, but I didn't enter. Although I have published a few poems, my "thing" is primarily journalism and blogging. But I am a board member of IWA and wanted to promote the contest and voting for all of our fantastic entrants!

Awww man I'm sad I missed this becasue I love Islamic poems and have written a few myself and submitting them would have been awesome. Will they have another contest?

Safiyyah said...

Salaams AMW:

Yes, we (IWA) have a poetry contest each year to tie in with Poetry Month (April). Insha Allah I will remind you next year (sounds nice that we will be friends, Insha Allah, next year, eh?).

Why don't you post some of your poetry at your blog?
