Cider Press Poetry Contest
If you are interested in poetry contests there are a lot of them out there. I don’t usually publicize contests, but one that caught my eye is the Cider Press Review CPR Book Award. The final judge for the contest is Jeanne Marie Beaumont. I am something of a fan of Ms. Beaumont’s work, so the chance to be selected by her as a winner seems very appealing.
If you have enough poems to make up 48 pages, you might consider entering the contest.
I will probably not enter because I will probably publish my own work, eventually. Yet external validation is a very pleasant thing, isn’t it?
