Monday Markets – The National Poetry Competition 2015 – 31st Oct 2015

The (UK) National Poetry Competition has opened for 2015:

“Entering a poetry competition is like entering the lottery and having the chance to design the winning ticket yourself. You are in charge. You may think you’re looking for us, the judges, but we are the ones who are looking for you and your poem. We’ve no idea what it looks like, and yet there’s every chance we’ll recognise it on sight.” – David Wheatley, National Poetry Competition Judge.

Any number of original poems up to 40 lines in length are eligible. The first entry is charged a 6.50 GBP fee, and subsequent entries are 3.50 GBP.

Prizes are 5,000 GBP for 1st place, then 2,000 and 1,000 for 2nd and 3rd. There are seven 200 GBP commended prizes.

The competition ends October 31st, 2015, so get writing and submitting!
