Deadline: TBD 6. Winning Writers A number of the contests found on our list came highly recommended by this site, which compiles some of the best free literary contests out there. Of the thousands of poets who must have submitted to the contest — no doubt many of them adults much wiser and more skilled than me — my poem had been chosen to be featured in an exclusive, hardcover anthology!
Submissions in both English and French are welcome. Your stanzas — rhyming or not — could be worth a fair amount of money in these poetry competitions.
Deadline: Annually on December 1. Submission To be eligible, each submission must be emailed as an attached Word document along with a completed contest form PDF. Poetry contests Curious about opportunities for poets? Why or why not? Here are several grammar checkers to choose from. Your total word count should be between and typed pages.
Deadline: Contest is held annually with rotating genres; the deadline for nonfiction has passed, and information has not yet been published. Hug-less and heartbroken: Financial calamity struck Ayesha Shakeel in the form of a cuddly pillow.
Galleys for publication within the year are also accepted.
