Free-to-Enter Poetry Contests

Each month during 2016, the NY Literary Magazine runs a free-to-enter Poetry Contest.
We are now accepting submissions for this month’s Best Poetry Contest.
Our literary magazine is seeking outstanding poems from talented poets.

The poems we are searching for are emotionally stirring with a deep meaning. Poems that make you think and feel and wonder, poems that stay with you even long after you have read them. Unforgettable poems, that will withstand the test of time.

Send in your best poetry for a chance to be published in our print poetry magazine and win an honor Award seal.

We’re accepting poetry submissions in the following categories: Read More
