About Us

Based in San Diego, California and Houlton, Maine,
The America Library of Poetry is dedicated
to the expression of creativity through writing.
From poetry to short stories, students across the country now have an outlet and a forum
in which they may share their thoughts, feelings, and experiences.
Each year The America Library of Poetry,
sponsors writing contests throughout
The United States of America.  

The Student Poetry Contest is for school age children enrolled in grades 3-12,
including tutored and home schooled children.
Entrants may enter the contest by clicking here.

Entries from the Student Poetry Contest are judged in four divisions:
grades 3-5, grades 6-7, grades 8-9, and grades 10-12. 

Winners and Runners Up in each division of the Student Poetry Contest
will receive a prize and Certificate of Achievement.
The writer who places first overall receives the Editor's Choice Award.
A select number of writers may be chosen to be published in a future compilation,
and as such, will have the unique opportunity of seeing their poetry in print. 

We at The America Library of Poetry take great delight in seeing
a renewed spark of interest in reading and writing,
and hopefully, through our support and recognition of writers everywhere
we will continue to fan the flames of literacy in America.
