Lowell Jaeger Named Contest Judge & Poet of the Month

Songs of Eretz Poetry Review is pleased to announce that Montana Poet Laureate Lowell Jaeger will serve as the Guest Judge for the Fifth Annual Songs of Eretz Poetry Award Contest (Endorsed by Duotrope) http://www.songsoferetz.com/p/songs-of-eretz.html, which will officially open September 1, 2018, and close October 15, 2018.  Lowell's biography may be found in the "Our Staff" section http://www.songsoferetz.com/p/about-our-editor-frequent-contributors.html.

Cash honoraria will be awarded to the first, second, and third place contest winners as well as to the eventual winner of the Readers Choice Award.  All awards will include publication in Songs of Eretz Poetry Review.  A total of one thousand five hundred dollars will be distributed as follows.

First place:  One thousand dollars & a $50 Gift Certificate from Duotrope
Second place:  Two hundred dollars
Third place:  One hundred dollars
Readers Choice Award:  Two hundred dollars

As a run-up to the contest, Lowell will be featured as our Poet of the Month for August 2018, meaning one of his poems will be featured each weekday in August.  This will be a real treat!  Readers should be sure to read Lowell's Poet's Notes statements, which will provide interesting insights into the workings of the mind of this fascinating and entertaining poet.  Those planning to enter the contest will obviously be able to use such insights to their advantage.
