    Any *good* poetry contests out there?

    Is there any GOOD poetry contests out there that doesn't require anything higher than a $5 entry fee? I googled to death and I can only find "poetry.com" over and over again g . Any links are appreciated

    Every magazine out there that accepts poetry has a contest every month. The entry fee is postage; the prize is publication.

    There are links to a page about legitimate poetry contests, markets, etc. at the bottom of the SFWA Writer Beware page on vanity anthologies:www.sfwa.org/beware/contests.html#Vanity

    Hope this helps. And thanks to Victoria for putting those links on her page. :hail

    P.S. There is a link directly to the links on that page, but I couldn't get it to work.

    Most libraries also post genuine poetry contests. Pop in and have a wee look.

    Good luck,

    If you swing by the poetry forum I posted a link to the ottakar contest there. In terms of magazines, it depends which genre your poetry is in.

    Legitimate Poetry Competitions

    No, Poetry.com isn't one.
