Radio Wildfire presenter Dave Reeves, current poet-in-residence at the Black Country Living Museum, has joined with the museum to launch its second annual prize poetry competition with the theme of industrial landscape, and they are inviting poets to use the region and its industry as inspiration. Free to enter and with a cash prize the competition was won last year by Jacqui Rowe from Flarestack Poets.

The competition will be judged by Dave Reeves, presenter of online broadcaster's live literature programme; Jacqui Rowe; and Mel Weatherley, head of learning at the Black Country Living Museum. The deadline is 27 September.   

The winner will receive £100, a family ticket to Black Country Living Museum and publication in an anthology.  Two runners-up will each receive £50, a family ticket to the Museum and publication. All winning entries will be published on the Museum website.  Other entries may be published at the organiser’s discretion. More details
