I like to celebrate the New Year according to the orthodox calendar. It gives me time to contemplate my goals for the new year. My goals are the same as last year. Submit to at least one poetry and or writing contest a month.
I found a new place to find contests. See: https://twitter.com/submittable
It has a diverse selection of publishers to choose from and isn’t limited to Canada.
Although I like the idea of being published in a Canadian publication.
