Poetry Contest — Get It in Now!

How are you feeling about the New Year? Excited? Trepidatious? Nervous? Whatever’s going around in your head, you should get it out of your head — sit down and write a poem. (Or, if you’re more in the mood, stand up and yell it out…but make sure you write it down or record it!)



And, once you’ve done that, send it to mjl.poetry@gmail.com by 5:00 tomorrow night for the chance to win MJL’s High Holiday Poetry Contest — and the chance to win one of a bunch of really cool prizes from Shemspeed, MyJewishLearning, and Simon & Schuster.

Of course, even if you don’t enter, keep your eyes peeled and your RSS feed set to stalk the MyJewishLearning blog, where we’ll be announcing the winners and reprinting the winning poems.

And if you need some inspiration, check out MJL’s High Holidays section — and our great guide to the Rosh Hashanah season, 10 Days to a Better You.
