    Arrow Reliable Poetry Contests??

    Everytime I try a google search on Poetry Contests or something similar, all of the well-known 'baddies' such as Poetry.com will show up at the top. I've clicked lots of links looking for something reliable, but I have only come to 'under construction' pages and outdated websites. Does anyone know of a good, reliable magazine or website that holds poetry contests? I'm looking for something with a prize preferably, but anything is fine ^_^ Thanks in advance!

    This is reputable (Poetry and Writers Magazine) http://www.pw.org/mag/

    I usually refer to this, too: http://www.winningwriters.com They have a contest where they see who can submit the worst poem to poetry.com. It's called the Wergle Flomp Poetry Contest.

    Good luck!

    Where do you find the poetry that you, yourself, read?

    I know of a website that has started a poetry contest. You can check it out at http://www.raggededgepublishing.com/mainframe.html .
