Poems will be judged by Anthony Dunn: “I’ve no bias at all as to rhyme or form, but both can be trip-hazards.Whatever their subject, subtext and substance, I want the submissions to be infectious – with the sheer delight of words and sounds and white space combining to become poems.”
Entry Fee: £5 for a single poem. For an entry fee of £10, poets may submit two or three poems. You can enter up to ten poems on one entry form.
