Oprelle’s annual “Matter” Poetry Contest 2024

2 June 2024

Matter Poetry Contest 2024

We are so happy you are here because that means you are a fellow lover of words. The annual Matter Poetry Contest is a favorite with Team Oprelle. This open contest makes for extremely intriguing reading for our judges, and makes a great finished book of winning poetry in the end.


  • First Place: $400 and publication
  • Second Place: $200 and publication
  • Third Place: $100 and publication

These top three winners will be published with a headshot and biography in the Matter – Award Winning Poetry XXIV anthology.

The contest is open to anyone age fourteen and up who writes poetry. Submit 3 to 40 lines in any style, on any topic. Even though this anthology will be called Matter, all that is expected is that your poetry reflects emotions and thoughts coming from the depths of you. You need not write about a particular word, just know that your talent with words can matter to others. Entry fee is $15.
