I’ve found a wonderful contest for budding poets. Red Mountain Press is holding its 2016 Poetry Prize competition. Submissions are due by September 15, and the winner of the contest will receive $1000 and a contract for the publication of a full book of poetry. In particular, the Press is looking for “significant themes in beautiful, strong and evocative language,” which is something I’m sure more than a few of you can manage.
If you are an emerging poet and want more information, visit their website at http://redmountainpress.us/poetry-prize/.
All luck and love to any contest participants!
