  1. Always take a look at these. Thanks for posting and continue. I quit the poetry contests. Seems 400 or 500 people “win” and then they hit you up for $60 for your copy of the anthology and naturally you buy extras to send to friends and family so they are quite a profitable book selling racket. I felt I was a sucker not a poet especially when a volume is filled with junior high mentality female puppy love stuff or that me and God are buddies muck and naturally include rainbow optimism vomit.

    • Thanks! Good luck if you decide to enter any of them. 🙂
      I’ve never entered a poetry contest. I don’t write too many poems, but I’ll take your word for it.
