Austrian Economics and Literature Poetry Writing Contest

Austrian Economics and Literature is having a poetry writing contest!

The subject of the poems must be, of course, on economics. The poems will be judged on both the author's demonstration of economic knowledge and on poetic form and skill.

Here are the rules:

1. The subject of the poems must be on economics. Naturally, metaphorical treatments are acceptable.

2. Poems are to be submitted to me, Troy Camplin, through my email address:

3. Co-bloggers cannot enter.

4. All judgments are final and cannot be contested.

5. Deadline for entries: June 30, 2011

6. The winning entry will be posted on Austrian Economics and Literature and the author of the winning entry will receive a signed copy of my book, Diaphysics.


  1. I got a permanent failure for that email address, any chance there is an alternate?

  2. I can't believe I have a typo on the contest entry email!!! I'm fixing it above, but it is

  3. I don't know how I missed this contest, but I will certainly be on the lookout for the next. Congratulations to Stephanie Herman, the winner, and kudos to the team here for the ongoing exploration of the literary/economic nexus.

    I invite you also to visit my site, Limericks Économiques, where we put economics into verse every morning.
