The OHSU Library invites submissions for the OHSU Poetry Contest!  We invite OHSU students, staff, faculty, alumni and volunteers to submit up to two original, unpublished poems. The deadline for submissions is Monday, April 4, 2022 and has been extended to 12 midnight  Pacific Time.

The author of the winning poem will receive a $100 Powell’s gift card, second place will receive a $75 Powell’s gift card.  Authors will be notified of the contest winners in late April 2022. 

We hope to celebrate our authors with a virtual event or showcase during National Poetry Month in April. The winning poems will also be framed and showcased in the OHSU Library entrance on the 3rd floor of the BICC building during May-June and archived in the Library’s Digital Collections.

For more information, please visit our Poetry page that includes submission guidelines.

OHSU Library is excited to support a forum for the OHSU community to express their creativity and share their insight and experience with others!
