The 1st Annual Toronto International Biker Poetry Contest will be part of Toronto Spring Motorcycle Show

Yup, you heard that right. At first you might think this is crazy idea…
But wait! You might be a poet and you didn’t even know it. We think riding a motorcycle is poetry in motion, and it can inspire you to put your passion into words. We’d like to inspire you get out your pens and try your hand at it. We’d love to hear your original works of poetry and it doesn’t have to rhyme – just communicate your feelings about your motorcycle, or trips you’ve taken, or just that exhilaration (or acceleration!) you feel when you are out there.
Complete rules & regs can be found at There are three author categories; Biker Men, Biker Ladies and Biker Kids with cash prizes for the winner in each category. Finalists will be selected from all poetry emails submitted online by March 25, 2019. If selected you will be invited to read your poem on stage at the Spring Motorcycle Show on Saturday, April 6th. All finalists will receive VIP tickets to the Show.
Entries must be original works, anywhere between 10 and 200 words. They can be humorous or heart wrenching, rhyming or non-rhyming, and must have a motorcycle theme. One thing is for sure, it’s guaranteed to be interesting.
Submit your poem(s) to
before March 25th!
