Manchester Cathedral opens door to poetry submissions

entry picture

Manchester Cathedral’s poetry competition is open for submissions, with the theme this year ‘A Truth’. Organisers say they are looking for poems “which examine the notion of truth and subjectivity, that resist certainties. Our theme is deliberately broad to inspire poems on a variety of topics, while engaging with the notion of what truth means to you. Your poetry could use vivid imagery and use poetic forms in interesting ways to interrogate what you feel is a truth. Be guided by intuition.”

The top prize is £200, and the deadline is 31 October. Entries will be judged by the Cathedral Writer in Residence Tom Branfoot, Dean of Manchester Rogers Govender, and poets Charlotte Shevchenko Knight and Maryam Hessavi. More details
