    Prizes: $1,500, $800, $400, (12) $75, publication and other stuff

    Poem:
    1) Find a vanity poetry contest, a contest with low standards whose main purpose is to entice poets to buy expensive products like anthologies, chapbooks, CDs, plaques and silver bowls. Vanity contests will often praise remarkably bad poems in their effort to sell as much stuff to as many people as possible. See site for an example of a vanity contest that accepts nearly everything.
    2) Make up a deliberately absurd, strange, laugh-out-loud parody poem. See site for an example.
    3) Submit your parody poem to a vanity contest as a joke.
    4) After you've done steps 1-3, submit your entry to the Wergle Flomp Poetry Contest on the website.
    5) There is no fee to submit to the Wergle Flomp Poetry Contest. Poets of all nations are welcome. Your poem must be in English (inspired gibberish also accepted) . Please submit only one poem. If you submit more than one, only your latest entry will be considered. Poems may be of any length.
