I'm very happy to report that, following the success of our poetry anthology, "SAILING IN THE MIST OF TIME", all prize-winners of both the current Margaret Reid Poetry Prize for Traditional Verse and the current Tom Howard Poetry Contest for Verse in All Styles and Genres, will be offered traditional print publication in a book of similar size and quality. Like SAILING IN THE MIST OF TIME, this anthology will eventually be sold in bookshops throughout the USA, Canada, England and Europe.
While this worldwide exposure will give a boost to the careers of the published poets, at no cost whatever to these selected entrants, I appreciate that not all winners will necessarily wish to have their poems published in traditional print form. Therefore, ALL WINNERS WILL BE COMPLETELY FREE TO EITHER ACCEPT OR DECLINE THIS OFFER OF FREE PUBLICATION IN AN ANTHOLOGY OF SIMILAR SIZE AND QUALITY TO "SAILING IN THE MIST OF TIME".
If you wish to check out "Sailing in the Mist of Time", this beautifully printed, large format book which usually retails for $16.50, is still being vigorously promoted at Amazon and other stores for only $9.95. You'll find a link to the list of selected poets and their works at http://poetrycontests.exactpages.com
The prize pool for each of our poetry contests has been increased to $5,250 (including a First Prize of $2,000), yet entry fees remain pegged at $6 for every 25 lines. Unlike other poetry contests, we impose neither a limit on the length of your poems, nor a limit on the number of poems you may enter. You may submit as many entries as you wish.
