It's not too late to enter the 2011 National Poetry Competition - and if you're thinking it's far too high a prize to aim for, think again. The 2010 winning poem was by an unpublished poet. Paul Adrian, who saw the entry form for the competition on his library noticeboard. Click here for details on entering.

The closing date is 31 October. First prize is £5,000, second prize, £2,000, third, £1,000. There are also seven commendations: £100 for each. The top three winning poems will be published in Poetry Review, and along with the commended poems, on the Poetry Society website, with the winner  also invited to read at the Ledbury poetry festival. Poems are judged anonymously. The 2011 judges will be Colette Bryce,  John Glenday, and Jackie Kay.
