The English Department is pleased to announce our annual poetry competitions in honour of Lilian I. Found and George Johnston, distinguished Canadian poet and former Professor of English at Carleton University. For the Lilian I. Found award, one prize will be awarded for the best unpublished poem of 50 lines or less by a full or part-time student currently enrolled at Carleton. For the George Johnston Prize, three prizes will be awarded for unpublished poems by three full-time or part-time students currently enrolled at Carleton. You may jointly enter up to five poems in any form for both prizes (total length should not exceed 250 lines).

More information and the submission form can be found on the English Department Annual Poetry Competitions Webpage.
