Save the Earth Poetry Contest

For the past 7 years, our contest has received poems from over 5,000 high school poets.  For 2019, we will be taking a sabbatical and compiling the best poems into an anthology.  

Our thanks to all who have participated and look for the poetry book in 2019.


The 'Save the Earth' Poetry Prize complements John Felstiner’s book Can Poetry Save the Earth?  A Field Guide to Nature Poems and is offered annually by the Felstiner family in memory of John Felstiner, Professor, Stanford University and by Charles Weeden, author of Poems of Yosemite and Doing Shots.
