🖋️ Literary Club “Ellipse” and Publishing House “Ellipse” announce the Third International Poetry Contest “Why Am I Writing This Letter.”

📜 Theme of the contest: “Letter and a Few Falling Stars.” The theme refers to the poem “Letter” by Sofia Mileva, winner of the Grand Prize for 2022. Goodness is given to others, and it is in each one of us. It is a feeling, a sensation, a meaning.

Attention! Do not use the theme as the title for your poems!

📌 Regulations:

1. Poetry up to 1 page, A4 format. The texts should be written in Bulgarian. Any theme is accepted, except for political themes.

2. Up to two works per author are allowed. No age restrictions.

3. The works should not have been published in any form or won awards in other competitions. Those who do not adhere to the regulations will be disqualified. Our goal is to awaken new inspiration through the theme.

4. Deadline for sending poems – from September 20, 2023, to December 8, 2023 (taking into account the date of the postal stamp). Participants from abroad, do not wait until the last moment.

5. Participation method: Send your works on paper to the editorial office of the publishing house at the address: Sofia, 1330, ul. “Dobrotich”, bl. 36, ap. 10, recipient: Ivelina Tsvetkova (for the contest). Do not forget to specify that the letter is sent for the contest.
