We here at KotaPress firmly believe that contests for poets should be
free AND legitimate. For this reason, we've set about to create a new
paradigm in our industry to show how this might be done. We have a Patron
of the Arts who underwrites these contests, so they are entirely free!
There is no cost on the front end in terms of reading/entry fees. There
is no cost on the back end in that winners get free copies of the print
Anthology book in which they are featured. No risk to the writer. AND
you get paid with at least 10 free copies of the book in which you are
featured! Click the menu items below to read on and prosper!
For author bios and excerpts of winning works, read here. Your works could
be featured here someday, too, but you have to enter first!
Please read these guidelines FULLY before you send your entry to us. If
the guidelines are not followed, we will delete your entry without reading
it and without notice. (In the past I have contacted people when there
was something missing, etc, but we get too many emails and entries now.
That will no longer happen! Please read the guidelines.)
For the schedule of upcoming readings and for reviews of release parties
past, check out this section. You are always invited to come meet us all
in person! Come on down!
For those of you who wish to advertise in our print Anthology books, we
