For those of you who love entering contests I copped a few from http://writersmarket.com for you. If you are in the Boston or Iowa area definitely keep reading.

The Iowa Award Un Poetry & Essay contest is for people who live in Iowa (obviously). They want the best in poetry, fiction or nonfiction and the winner will get $1500. Deadline for this one is January 31st.
John Ciardi for Poetry wants your best unpublished collection of poetry. $1000 will be the prize. Hurry though, the deadline is January 15th.
