Poetry and Short Stories

We invite participants to present poetry or short stories. They can be offered as text, as an audio file of a reading of the poem or story, or as a video of a reading of a poem or story. Each participant may submit no more than one entry. Separate entry forms are used for text, sound, and video submissions.  Please select the appropriate entry form.

Contestants, we ask that you provide a title for your entry, and a description to explain the illustration.  Finally, please credit the work appropriately, for example recognizing the author and/or the source of inspiration.    

Viewers may vote (“like”) for their favorites.  The author/performer of the entries receiving the most votes will receive a certificate and a discount voucher to Melia hotels in Palma for the face-to-face Aquatic Sciences Meeting to be held in 2023.
