for writers and readers….
The wonderful people at Fish Publishing – who organise some of the best international writing competitions – have come up with a project that tries to capture the strange times we are living through.
Theme – Coronavirus
Deadline: June 15 2020
Results (you don’t have to wait long): June 30 2020
Anthology Published: July 2020
Haiku and Senryu are a Japanese form of short poetry. Senryu tend to be about human foibles while Haiku tend to be about nature. Traditional Haiku and Senryu consist of 17 syllables, in three lines, 5, 7, and 5.
Many poets do not rigidly adhere to this and nor will we.
Entry Fees: €10 (€3 of every entry to OXFAM)
The prize: Nine pieces (three from each genre) will be published in the Fish Anthology 2020. Short-listed entries will be published on the Fish web site. so, basically that’s honour and glory and in this instance I don’t think it’s a bad deal. (And it is something to be in a Fish anthology)

Good luck and stay safe.
