Calaveras County Fair & Jumping Frog Jubilee Is Calling all Cowboy Poets
Angels Camp, CA...(Frogtown, USA)..Calaveras County Fair & Jumping Frog Jubilee 3rd Annual Cowboy Poetry Competition is May 20, 2016. Our focus is on stories about the life of rural communities and today's real working West. We look for poems and lyrics that say something original about cowboying, ranching, or rural life. .
We encourage poems and lyrics inspired by personal experiences. We look for works that go beyond platitudes, seeking those that say something new, or say something in a new way about today's real working West.
We are not looking for idealized "Old West" poems or lyrics. We do consider works with factual historical themes that relate to cowboying, ranching, or rural life.
We are not looking for poems or lyrics inspired by a "Hollywood" view of the West, worn jokes turned into poems or songs, or "bathroom humor."
We do not accept blatantly political, patriotic, religious or romantic poems or lyrics that are not original, well-developed stories about today's working West.
Works should be suitable for our wide audience, which includes young readers. Works that have been published elsewhere previously are welcome.
