About The Poetry Contest

Hi, my name is James Allen, and I am a web designer in Illinois. I started this free poetry contest in July of 2011 to give aspiring poets a platform to present their best new poems and gain feedback from other poets and poetry fans alike while competing for a real cash prize.

In my opinion, the ultimate free poetry contest would be totally free to enter without any catches or being bombarded with advertisements in your mailbox or Email. It would have a cash prize for the winning poem. It would also be judged by 1000’s of poetry fans, like me and you, to ensure that an unbiased and consensual decision is made when selecting a winner.

Using the technology that the internet gives us today, I have managed to create that free poetry contest right here @ BestNewPoems.com!
