Hessler Cover from 2016

Poetry Contest


2017 Poetry at the Hessler Street Fair

During the month of March 2017 we will be accepting submissions for the 2017 Hessler Street Fair Poetry Contest and its corresponding anthology. Contest is free to enter and open to anyone age 14 and up. Winners will receive cash prizes and get to read their poems live at this year's Fair.
  • 1st Place winning poet will receive $100
  • 2nd Place winning poet will receive $50
  • 3rd Place winning poet will receive $25
One Single Rose -- 1st Place 2016

When and where:

Submissions will be accepted from March 1st to March 31st 2017. We will let you know by April 30th if your work has been accepted for the anthology. Poets will be invited to read their accepted works during the contest reading. The poetry contest reading will take place May 23, at 7 pm, at Happy Dog (11625 Euclid Ave). Shortly after the reading, our panel of judges will select three winners to receive cash prizes and read live at the Hessler Street Fair itself.

The 2017 Hessler Street Fair will take place June 3rd and 4th from 11 am to dusk, rain or shine, on Hessler Road and Hessler Court in Cleveland. The exact time of winning poets' reading will be announced soon.
Tanya Pilumeli -- 2nd Place 2016

Before you submit, please read these guidelines:

  • Submit up to 5 original poems or 5 images of your own original art via email to writingknights@live.com (no snail mail entries, please). Subject line: "Hessler Street Poetry Contest". Previously published pieces are okay as long as you have the rights to them.
  • Please include your name, street address, city, state, zip code, telephone number and e-mail address with your submission(s).
  • Please remember the deadline is midnight on March 31st. We will not have time to consider works submitted later than that.
  • Poets and artists published in the book retain all rights to their work.
  • Any accepted art work will be printed in black and white.
  • The contest reading will be held at Happy Dog 11625 Euclid Ave, Cleveland, OH on May 23rd at 7pm. About 20 minutes after all participating poets have read, the winners will be announced and prizes handed out. If you have won 1st, 2nd, or 3rd Place in the Hessler Street Fair Poetry Contest in the last three years, you are welcome to submit to the book and read your poem, but you will not be eligible to win a prize. Prize winners are also expected to read on the designated day during the Hessler Street Fair.
Mindi Kirchner-Greenway -- 3rd Place 2016

Contributor copies:

Contributors to the 2017 Hessler Street Fair Poetry Anthology will be able to purchase a copy of the book for half price from the Hessler Street Fair Booth during the Fair, or at Mac's Backs Books, 1820 Coventry Road in Cleveland Heights (216-321-2665 / macsbacks.com). We regret that we cannot afford to provide free contributor copies in print at this time. However, we will make a free pdf version of the book available to the public in late 2017.

FCC Guidelines:

Poetry has always been an integral part of the Hessler Street Fair, sometimes having its own stage on the street and sometimes combining with music on the main stage, but always doing something interesting. The top three winners will be given the opportunity to read from the stage at the Hessler Street Fair, simulcast on live radio and the web, during the Fair. Poetry read on air must not include any words designated to be obscene language by the U.S. Federal Communications Commission.
