I’ve talked about PoetryNook.com a few times on here. It’s a weekly poetry contest that’s free to enter but pays cash prizes. Even better, they nominate six poems a year for the coveted Pushcart Prize. You can enter previously published work as well.
Seem too good to be true? This is no joke—I’ve submitted 38 weeks in a row, received two firsts ($50), two honorable mentions ($25) and a Pushcart nomination. I have a reminder set in my Google calendar to submit something every Monday… and I’ve decided to share that reminder here.
