Default Helen Schaible sonnet contest

I'm passing along the following announcement from Allison Joseph's CRWROPPS list about this year's Helen Schaible sonnet contest. I feel a bit silly re-posting something that has this many exclamation marks, but I'm just the messenger, and it's a contest where Sphereans have won and placed in the past.

Helen Schaible International Sonnet Contest 2017
Deadline: September 1, 2017 (postmark)

Dear Poet,

Have you ever wondered what it might be like to write a great sonnet, like Petrarch, Sir Philip Sidney, or even Shakespeare himself? Well, you will never know unless you give it a try. You might surprise yourself!!! Enter our Sonnet Contest and see!!!

Please send TWO COPIES of ONE poem, either a Shakespearean or a Petrarchan sonnet, to Barbara L. Eaton, 416 Gierz Street, Downers Grove, IL 60515, USA. One copy should have ID (name, address, phone no, and email) and one should be unidentified.

First Prize $50. Second Prize $35. Third Prize $15. Three Honorable Mentions Unranked. Three Special Recognitions Unranked.

There is no entry fee. Winners will be notified by November 1, 2017. Good luck, and happy writing!!!

Questions? E-mail us at poetsandpatronsATgmailDOTcom

It's also a contest where they do not bother to announce winners some years, but "no blood, no foul" since they don't charge.

It is also a contest in which the titles of the winners are announced, but the poems are not published. So one can submit a sonnet both to it and to the Nemerov sonnet contest. Just saying.
