While I don’t write poetry I do read it everyday.  So it seems natural I should spotlight contests that focus on this wonderful style of writing.  This contest deadline is July 1, 2011, $18.00 entry fee, this is a non-profit organization which supports writers of all voices and experiences.  I can’t argue with that mission statement.  A recent survey of writing contests done by Poets & Writers reveals the majority of winners in contests are in fact poets.  LA Carlson
