Has one of your poems been published or won a contest? The Tom Howard/Margaret Reid Poetry Contest wants it! Unpublished poems are also welcome. They'll award $1,500 to the best poem in any style, and $1,500 to the best poem that rhymes or has a traditional style. The top 12 poems will be published online, and the top two winners will also receive one-year gift certificates from their new co-sponsor, Duotrope (a $50 value). The deadline for submission is September 30, 2018.
$12 entry fee per poem. Submit as many poems as you like. No restriction on country or age of author. Judge: S. Mei Sheng Frazier, assisted by Jim DuBois. This contest is sponsored by Winning Writers, one of the "101 Best Websites for Writers" (Writer's Digest).
