Three grand prize poem creators will receive a $100. The winning poem will be choreographed, costumed and performed at The Dancing Poetry Festival by Natica Angilly’s Poetic Dance Theater Company and videotaped for you at the Dancing Poetry Festival in San Francisco.

Six first prizes will receive $50 each, 12 second prizes will receive $25 each and 30 third prizes will receive $10 each.

There is a line limit of 40 to facilitate choreography, no limit on number of entries.
