Every year the Pennsylvania Poetry Society sponsors a poetry contest with many categories. This year's contest includes 17 different categories, each with a first and second prize. For the Grand Prize Award category, the prizes are $100 and $75; for all other categories, the prizes are $30 and $20.
The different categories are for poems of different styles, subject matters, and forms. Category #9 is the Haiku, Senryu, Tanka Award, and this is the only category that doesn't require poems to be titled. The contest's postmark deadline is January 15th, 2013, and entry fees for non-PPS members are $2 per poem.
