The American West and the Cowboy way of life have been a point of inspiration for generations of writers, poets, and artists, and now, American Cowboy magazine is asking fans to submit their Western and Cowboy poetry.
Western wordsmiths are encouraged to share their original works of Western poetry in the Rockin’ WR Poetry Contest. Two lucky writers will win tickets for two to the Rock’n Western Rendezvous at The Ranch, Larimer County Fairgrounds and Event Complex in Loveland, Colorado, May 29–31. Along with tickets to the event, the two winners will receive the opportunity to recite their winning poem live on the Cowboy Poetry Stage.
“Our fans have always shown a strong interest in Western and Cowboy poetry,” said American Cowboy Associate Editor, Lauren Feldman. “We’re excited to provide this opportunity for our readers to share their poetic talents in the form of a contest.”
Users have until April 30, 2015, to submit their original poems at americancowboy.com/poetrycontest.
