entry picture

There’s still time - just – to enter the £5,000 National Poetry Competition. The deadline is 31 October. Ok, there will be thousands of entries, but the judging is anonymous – they don’t know who you are. Why not give it a go? You can enter by post or online. First prize is £5,000, second prize £2,000, third prize £1,000, with seven £1,000 commendations as well. The top-three winning poems will be published in Poetry Review. The winner is also invited to read at Ledbury poetry festival in July 2013. Up to 150 entrants will also be offered a discount on selected activities from the Poetry School. Winning and commended poems will be published on the Poetry Society website when the competition prizes are announced in spring 2013. The judges are Vicki Feaver, WN Herbert, and Nick Laird. More details
