The River Muse was founded by a poet and is currently run by poets. It publishes poetry and holds contests for poetry. A journal of poets inside and out. The River Muse strives to provide a platform for the new and the already known poetic voices from around the world.

Every Issue we publish ten to fifteen poets** and we host poetry contests throughout the year that challenge the creative spirit of a poet.The challenge is to write a poem to a prompt in four days. The prompts vary from photo to video. The Reading Fee is $5 per entry (up to 3 poems.) The prizes include a feature on The River Muse website, the winning poem published in the next issue, 20% of the pool, a copy of our next issue, and the special guest judge for the next contest.

  1. Always have a special feeling when thinking of The River and the contests. The Poetry Slam of December 30, 2011 was the first time I entered a contest, let alone read one of my poems to be heard by an audience. I was surprised to begin having followers after winning. I look forward to each issue and hope that others enjoy the writing as much as I do. Charles ‘Gray Poet’ Townsend

    • Thank you Charles. That was something else that contest. Your story should be heard……… ideas are ticking and clicking. I will get a hold of you. 🙂
