The LUV Poetry Contest was brought to you with six successful years of Let Us Vent event history in mind. The LUV event has always been celebrated around Valentine's Day. It has been a platform for poets and artists to express themselves freely. Performers 'vent' about Love, Life, Relationships, Politics, Bad Habits, and much more. So for this contest, the choice is yours. 


As you might have guessed, the LUV experience is virtual this year, with a Poetry Contest, as well as a Live Streamed Showcase (February 2021).


If you can't join the fun this time, then check-in every quarter for a new Poetry Contest or stop by our Writing Prompts tab for inspiration.
