For the Poets living in the St. Louis area we have a contest sponsored by the Wednesday Poetry Club of St. Louis.
Each entrant must live within a 50-mile radius of St. Louis and may submit two poems which have never been published or won an award. Also, entrants may not have one first prize twice within the last five years. If that is the case, you are ineligible.
The deadline for entries is 2/1/2010.
Prizes are $700, $300, and $150.
There is also a junior level for students in grades 10 through 12. Prizes for this level include $100, $75, $50, $25, and Book Prize.

Special thanks to the Creative Writers Opportunities List which brought this competition to my attention.
