Warrior Poets -- Win Some Jack!

Winning Writers is offering 3000 clams in total prizes for the best war-poetry submitted to them.

Now, I just have a caveat. This email came to me unsolicited. The email claims that Winning Writers was selected as one of Writer's Digest's 101 Best Writing Websites of 2005, but as far as I can tell only the 2001-2004 lists are available online, and Winning Writers does not seem to appear on those lists. Writer's Digest is a legitimate magazine, and if they have Winning Writers on their list that would seem to indicate it's a quality site, but... I don't see any results for 2005.

The entry fee is $12, and the deadline is May 31. It's normal to charge a fee for this sort of contest, and the $12 fee is pretty low (fees for scriptwriting contests can be $50 or $75), but again, I can't personally vouch for the site. But if you've got a yen for rhyme and meter and want to write about war, maybe you want to take a $12 chance.

But you're not going to win anyway. I've seen all your work. I just don't think a haiku about the 1st ID "slicin' like a fuckin' hammer" is going to take the prize.
