Participate in the Quantum Leap Poetry Contest by submitting a science-themed poem! This contest, in partnership between The Wabash Review of Wabash College and Indiana Humanities, is a two-part contest for Hoosiers of ALL ages and disciplines.
Participants must submit an entry form (details below) along with his or her poem by mail or email by Dec. 20, 2017. Our judges will reveal the top 10 finalists by Jan. 7, 2018 and invite the top 10 to recite their poems at a special Quantum Leap Poetry Contest event. The winner will receive $300 and have his or her poem published in The Wabash Review. Adam Henze, who was named the Official Track Poet of the 100th Running of the Indianapolis 500 thanks to another poetry contest presented by Indiana Humanities, will return as a judge alongside Indiana’s former poet laureate, Karen Kovacik. 
The Poetry Contest reading will be held at Indy Reads Books on Jan. 19 from 7 to 9 p.m. and registration is free, but seating is limited. Sun King Brewery will provide alcohol; light appetizers will be available. All ages are welcome. You can register here: https://qlpoetrycontest.eventbrite.com
