Opportunity Knocks - Cape Cod Cultural Center 15 Jan 2011
Poetry is not just for the scholarly, it is for everyone, everywhere. Some of the best poems are written outside of the classroom by those experiencing life firsthand. If you have ever considered submitting your poetry to places beyond the blogosphere, but were unsure, we hope to inspire you to do so by simplifying the process. Sometimes all it takes is an envelope and a stamp. In our “Opportunity Knocks” posts we provide information and links to publications, contests and other opportunities for your poetry to be read and/or published. It is our goal to sift through and filter out the spam and scams out there. What we post here will be our best attempt at helping you find legitimate places to send your work.

*Many places do require small entry fees so please be aware of that when considering submitting your work. We will try to find those that don’t ask for any or at least that keep it to a minimal cost.
*If you know of any opportunities locally, nationally or worldwide please feel free to share them with Poets United so that we can check into them and then in turn share them with our readers and members.
