WILLIAM CARLOS WILLIAMS ANNUAL POETRY COMPETITION
The William Carlos Williams Poetry Competition, sponsored annually by the Department of Family and Community Medicine at NEOMED, is open to students attending allopathic or osteopathic schools of medicine in the United States, Puerto Rico, and Canada.
Each year, the national competition receives hundreds of hundreds of entries, which are judged by the Wick Poetry Center at Kent State University. The top three prize-winning poems receive a monetary award ($300, $200, and $100 for first, second, and third place, respectively) and will be considered for publication in the Journal of Medical Humanities. In addition, the first-, second-, and third-place prize winners are invited to NEOMED as featured readers in the annual awards ceremony in April. (Travel expenses are paid by NEOMED’s Department of Family and Community Medicine.)
