About Contests

If you have finished work, I encourage you to consider entering a contest. Browse the Internet for local and national competitions. Some have applications fees, some do not. If you are an experienced writer, contact your city officials, ask if they have a Poet Laureate Program. Ask when will the next Poet Laureate selection guidelines will be released, then apply. You will find this useful experience. Do not worry about winning. Applying is a major success.
