The Voices Israel Group of Poets

Reuben Rose Competition

Winning Poems since 2004

The three winning poems of the competition, and the poems awarded an Honorable Mention, are published in the following year's Anthology. Online versions of the winning poems are also here on our website. They can be accessed by year from the links below, or from the top menu bar.


Most of the year-by-year pages directly contain the texts of the winning poems. For 2017 we changed this: that page contains the information about the competition, and a link to an online file containing not only the three winning poems but also the ten poems that received an Honorable Mention. 


Please note that the earlier pages (2015 and before) were written using software which our website server no longer supports. The result, unfortunately, is that these pages now display in different fonts and font sizes, badly spaced, and cannot be edited. The only way to upgrade them is to copy over the entire text into new pages, edit them, and delete the old ones. We'll get to it, but it will take time. Meanwhile, our apologies.
