Eisenbrauns Poetry contest
- With apologies for the cross-posting:
Love is in the air! We're looking for a few good scholars to display
both eros and erudition in our first (and possibly last!) Ancient Near
Eastern Valentine's contest.
We want no more than three of your original[*] compositions, in any
ancient Near Eastern language (we'll bend the rules a bit and allow
Greek), accompanied by an English translation. Artwork is similarly
welcome. All entries should be sent via e-mail to akerr at eisenbrauns
dot com before noon on Wednesday, February 13.
The decisions of the judges will be final and, most likely, extremely
arbitrary. Prizes will be given. Winners will be announced on February
14, 2008, and winning entries will be showcased on the Eisenbrauns
website. Submitting an entry constitutes permission to reproduce your
[*] We have memorized the entire corpus of Near Eastern poetry, and will
be watching for cheating. OK, we haven't -- but someone out there will
catch you at it if your words are not your own, and that wouldn't be
good. So don't.
Have fun with it!
