CONTEST LISTINGS AND SUBMISSION CALL OPPORTUNITIES
Don't forget the 50-category NFSPS CONTESTS. Your IPA membership (if paid by Mar.1st) entitles you to the "member" rate, which means you can enter 48 poems (or as many categories as your work will fit into) for a total fee of $10.00. Deadline is March 15 postmark. You can print or download the contest brochure from the NFSPS website. Check out all of the NFSPS annual poetry contests as well as all those offered by individual affiliated state associations.

Things All Poets Know - Maybe
There are MANY sites where you can share your poems on the internet. Do not forget, a poem placed on the internet is published and cannot be entered as an unpublished poem in contests where this is a requirement.
Rules need to be read carefully and followed exactly. In a few cases kind-hearted contest chairs will overlook your deviations, but most will disqualify poems that ignore one or more guidelines, either intentionally or carelessly. Why waste your time and postage if your submission never gets into the judge's or editor's hands?
SASE means self-addressed stamped envelope and should be included with each request for information/rules and with all contest or potential publication submissions (unless guidelines specifically say "no SASE.") Send a #10 (business-size 9.5"x4.5") envelope.
