High Holiday Poetry Contest 2010

Posted by Naomi Firestone-Teeter

Poets! Ready for the 2010 High Holiday poetry contest on MyJewishLearning? Read more below:

MyJewishLearning wants your poems about the High Holidays. They can be funny, or serious, or both. They can rhyme. They can be long (though we are from the Internet short-attention-span generation). We want to be entertained, and we want to be inspired.

Submit a poem on any theme related to the High Holidays to mjl.poetry@gmail.com by August 25. We’ll publish the winning entries on MyJewishLearning.com just in time for Rosh Hashanah.

More details on the contest can be found here.
