PoetrySoup also sponsors free poetry contests with cash awards once every four months. The PoetrySoup International Poetry Contest is free poetry contest open to all forms and genres of poetry. This contest now awards $1000 in prizes yearly and is open to all poets either with or without previously published poetry. Only electronic submissions through the PoetrySoup website are accepted.
As most Soupers know, we have NEVER sanctioned the placing of HTML code in poems unless it is the Center tag (allows you to center poems). However in the past, our poetry submission page was not designed to remove it. We finally got around to correcting our code. So now, if you place HTML tags in your poems, that code is stripped out and replaced with an “UNSUPPORTED CODE” message. Please do NOT use HTML tags other than the Center tag. We now strip out all prohibited HTML tags. This is a much needed security measure. Without it, we are susceptible to hackers and malicious code. We are trying to keep YOUR computers and poems safe!!! Thanks Soupers!!!
