Contests are open to all poets in the United States and Canada. Each poem submitted must be typewritten on standard size paper with the contest month in the upper right-hand corner. Send TWO COPIES of each poem with author's name and address in the upper right corner on ONE copy. Put no identification on the second copy. Address labels are acceptable.

Multiple entries are especially welcome. Poems must be in English. There is no limit to the number of poems submitted. Only poems not previously awarded a money prize are eligible. If poems have been previously published, please state where.

A fee of two dollars ($2.00) must accompany entry for each poem submitted (or 3 poems for $5). Make checks to CFCP, Inc. DEADLINE is the last day of the contest's calendar month. Envelope must be postmarked before midnight of that day. For those poets who use a post office that does not date-stamp mail, a written date beneath the return address will suffice. Please print the contest month on the outside of the envelope.

Print contest month on outside of mailing envelope, on SASE for winners' list and on return envelope. Please make sure proper postage is included.
