2019 Young Poets Competition

In partnership with Snowline JUSD and Rattle magazine, the 2019 Wrightwood Literary Festival is featuring a young poets competition. Winners will be announced in September and honored on day two of the festival, Sunday, September 29th. The winning authors will receive a gift basket and be invited to read their poems at the event.

Poems written by those age 15 and under may also be selected for publication in the 2020 Rattle Young Poets Anthology. All school-aged poets in San Bernardino and neighboring counties are welcome to enter (Los Angeles, Riverside, Kern, Orange).

To enter up to four poems, just follow the link below to Rattle’s submission manager. You’ll be able to either paste the poems into a form as text or upload a document file.
