We post events on our International Poetry Calendar from various organizations, and we provide “Learn more here” links if you need more details or want to inquire further about events, contests, etc. You can find more information about the Kanhaiyalal Sethia Award for Poetry in the following places:


    It appears the award is presented by jury nomination, not by submitted poems. However, you should go to the contact information on the ZEE Jaipur Literature Festival web site to send your inquiry.
