We suggest you avoid the following contests and organizations.

Many appear to be disguised vanity publishers, whose goal is to sell you expensive personalized products and attract you to conferences.

Similar to the online forums mentioned above, some of these self-publishing companies will sponsor "free" contests that are really lead-generation devices for aggressive marketing campaigns, or worse.

Copyright your manuscript before submitting, to reduce the risk of piracy.

Winning prizes from these organizations will add little to your resume, and may even make you look amateurish to publishers and other poets.

We're concerned that excessive praise for average work may confuse writers about the meaning of excellence and weaken their drive to improve.

Watch out for online critique forums and social networking sites that offer what appear to be free contests, but make unreasonable claims to your intellectual property rights in the fine print.

Vanity contests are characterized by low standards, and are willing to publish most of the submissions they receive (typically half or more).

They primarily market their publications to the contestants themselves, often at high prices.
