Default sonnet contest at Better Than Starbucks

I just noticed there's a sonnet contest at Better Than Starbucks. No entry fee, deadline Dec 1. Here's the link.

Editing to add: another contest that might be of interest to Sphereans is this one, which doesn't explicitly ask for metrical or formal verse, but it's judged by Dana Gioia. I came across both of these on Erika Dreifus's The Practicing Writer blog/newsletter.

Thanks for this, Nausheen. Haven’t been able to keep up with these things of late, so this helps.

Thanks Nausheen. I've sent a couple to BTS but can't enter the other one as a "Submittable" presence is necessary - which in my case I have not got.

Annie,

Signing up for Submittable is free, and not complicated. Just mentioning that in case it's potential fees or technical issues that have kept you away from it. (There are, of course, journals and contests that charge a fee, but this particular contest does not.)

Thanks, Nausheen. I was surprised by Submittable's being necessary for submission, as it were. I'll investigate.

Submittable is very easy and convenient to use, and you will be able to use it to submit to many different magazines and journals. You'll be glad you signed up.
