Preston Poets’ Society are inviting entries for a competition celebrating the Preston Guild, a historic event dating back to 1179 and marked in the town every 20 years. The competition is to write a poem which can be in any style or form, but must feature Preston within it, and be a maximum of 32 lines. There is a £100 prize and a £3 for each entry to cover admin costs. The competition is to be judged by Preston-born poet Michael Symmons Roberts, who is co-director with Carol Ann Duffy of Manchester Metropolitan University’s Manchester Writing School, and who won the Whitbread Poetry Award. The deadline is 31 July. More details, entry form
