Cozy Cat Press is looking to curl up with some cozy poetry! Have you always been one step ahead of the TV detectives? Do you have a perfect crime? Maybe you’ve already cracked a case wide open! We’re looking for work as clever as the most conniving criminals and sly sleuths to be published in our first ever poetry anthology. Awaken your inner private eye and submit a mystery themed poem for the chance to win cash prizes, illustrations inspired by your work, and publication! See website for official rules.
