Deadline: August 30, 2005
No Submission Fees
Email submissions within the body of email to GalateaTen at

Submit 1-2 poems to a "pleasure-able" poetry contest sponsored by The Chatelaine's Poetics and Meritage Press. No restrictions on form or interpretations of "pleasure."

Members of OENOPHILES FOR POETRY (a for-profit, private organization) will judge the entrants -- probably during a meeting while they're also judging some wines (so consider that fair warning if, uh, that's something you need to be warned about). The poet whose poem most pleases the judges will receive a present of more than twenty fantastic books of poetry or poetry/art collections. (See Eileen's Chatelaine blog for the full list.)

Last but not least, if the contest winner lives in a U.S. state that allows alcohol to be shipped from California, said contest winner will also receive a bottle of fine wine chosen by Eileen Tabios, "The Chatelaine Poet" aka "Missy WinePoetics."
