If you don’t know about this magazine, Poets & Writers Magazine, it is wonderful. It comes six times a year costs $20 and is full of wonderful information for writers and poets.

In fact, I want to share with you what Emma Komlos-Horbsky put together in this latest issue. I can’t help myself. I want to be able to share in the extensive work she did.

All of these contests are FREE to Enter, but all have cash prizes. They are listed by month going forward.

The most important advice I can give you before we dive in is this: FOLLOW THE SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS EXACTLY AS THEY ARE GIVEN. EXACTLY. MORE PEOPLE LOS OUT BECAUSE EITHER THEY DIDN’T PAY ATTENTION OR THOUGHT IT DIDN’T MATTER. We will revisit this at the end.

You can find out about the prize money and the details by using each link.
