Ahead of its traditional poetry event celebrating linden trees in blossom, the Macedonian Writers Association has launched its annual Linden Festival poetry contest, which closes May 25.

Any member of the MWA can submit a single poem for consideration.

The poem may be any length, any style or on any subject, according to the official press release.

A panel of three judges will select the winning work and invite the author to read it and receive the award at an event held in Skopje on June 5.

Entrants should send four copies of their poems to the Macedonian Writers Association, ul. Maksim Gorki 18, 1000 Skopje, or submit a poem via email at [email protected] through May 25, 2019.
