Poetry Space Competition – blog from John Siddique

Thursday, 10 September 2015

We are almost ready to announce the results of Poetry Space Competition 2015.

John Siddique has worked extremely hard over the last few weeks reading every single entry. (322 were entered) Take a look at his blog entry from August 20th as he begins to approach the task.

Over the next few days winners and commended poets will receive a phone call and/or e-mail from me with  good news. This is my favourite time of year in many ways as it is lovely to deliver good news. Though I am aware many will be disappointed.

The results, report from John and the top three poems will be published on the competition page on Tuesday 15th September. The top three will receive prizes of £250, £100 and £50 respectively.

Thank you to everyone who entered. Your support is very much appreciated. In this competition all profits help Poetry Space to continue to widen participation in poetry and bring more poets to recognition.
