Itching to let your inner poet out? Now’s a great time to put the pen to the paper, as Tablet is running a great contest in honor of National Poetry Month and their newest biography on Yehuda Halevi by Hillel Halkin:

To celebrate National Poetry Month, every day for the rest of April we will be presenting a Halevi poem a day—or an excerpt of one—in their beautiful modern translations by Hillel Halkin


We’re hoping that not only will you love these poems, but that they’ll also inspire your own reimaginings of Halevi’s work. To that end, a contest: compose a song using Halevi’s lyrics, or create an illustration or video inspired by his writing; anything that applies your own creativity to interpret one of these poems.

Winner gets an iPad! Not too shabby. Read more details here.
