Rules and Guidelines, 2017 Contest

Poets may enter in two categories: Portrait or Landscape.

  • Portrait Category: Poems about you or someone you know from South Dakota. This is a category of both biography and autobiography.
  • Landscape Category: Poems about the land and features that make South Dakota unique.

There is a fee of $4.00 per poem for non-SDSPS members and $2.00 for SDSPS members. Please submit each poem in a separate document

There is no restriction on length or style of poem. You may submit an unlimited number of poems as long as the number of poems in your submission matches the fees you submit. We only accept electronic entries.

There will be prize money of $100, $50, and $25 for the top three places in each of the two tracts of the annual contest. Honorable Mention candidates are possible and will be considered for publication. Judging is done by an independent committee selected by the Contest Manager.

Entries are open now until December 1, 2017. We look forward to your submissions.

Please Note: Submission to Pasque Petals is FREE to 2018 Members of SDSPS.  Due to the rising cost of printing our literary magazine, however, we are now charging non-SDSPS members a submission fee  of $3.00 for up to five poems.
