for writers and readers….

International Poetry Competition

tree leftThis is a major competition run by Lightship Literary organisation with a major first prize: £1,000 / US$1600

The winner and nine runners-up will also be published in Lightship Anthology 3 and will be invited to read from their work at an awards ceremony in November 2013 which I imagine will be in Hull as that is where Lightship is based

There’s a word limit rather than a line limit and you have 200 words to play with (for prose writers that would be very flash fiction but poets know how to make a word work hard).

There’s no set theme or style, but the poem cannot have been published in any form.

Deadline is June 30th and the cost of entry is £8
