I have been a poet for 55 years and been published in 51 little magazines, the majority of which are defunct. Never being able to get a book published by a literary press I am going to self publish a book of my poems. I have been in several poetry workshops over the years and miss their close reading, suggestions, and hearing the unique work of other poets. I learned so much and have much more to learn. I have taught Latin and some Greek pro-bono to teens and adults the last 15 years.

We carefully review the practices and policies of each contest before including it in the Writing Contests database, the most trusted resource for legitimate writing contests available anywhere.
