New Poetry Contest — Sponsored by Conceit Magazine

Posted on August 30, 2010

If you’re looking for a poetry contest, here’s one I’ve never heard of before. It costs $7 per entry for up to two poems, and you can win up to $50.

See further details below. Follow the directions and stay away from centos. The online Merriam-Webster dictionary defines a cento as “… a literary work made up of parts from other works.” Yeah, stay away from those.

I found a Facebook page for Conceit Magazine at this link — http://www.facebook.com/pages/Conceit-Magazine/10526523054?ref=ts and Editor Perry Terrell also has a Twitter page at this link — http://twitter.com/Conceitmagazine.

Good luck!
