The Illinois State Poetry Society is open to entries for its 19th Annual Poetry Contest. There are several categories that you can enter -- most notably category #3, modern or traditional haiku. The $6 entry fee allows you to submit three poems, and additional poems can be entered for $1 each. Poems can not have been previously published or have won money in any other contest. Prizes consist of $50, $20, and $10. The postmark deadline is November 10th.
If you're in the mood for a good, short supernatural vengeance story, check out Lee Moan's "Guardian." And with autumn and Thanksgiving creeping up on us, here's a good pumpkin pie haiku by Deborah P. Kolodji.
