Poetry Space Competition 2021

As some of you may know, I run a cafe in Beaminster, Dorset with my husband Chris (Tangerine Cafe and Gallery) and this has kept me very busy this summer, so I have decided t0 extend the closing date for this year’s competition to September 30th to give me more time to collate the entries and send them to our judge, Rosie Jackson. This will also give many of you more time to get your entries in.

Rosie is an award winning poet and she will read all the entries. There are prizes of £500, £250 and £100 on offer as well as book prizes for all the top 2o poets. We shall also be publishing a prizewinners’ anthology containing the top twenty poems. It is just £5 to enter a previously unpublished poem that you have written. Poetry Space members can enter a free poem for every paid poem entered (two for one).

Go to the competition page for more information or direct to the shop to pay. Them email (susanjanesims@gmail.com)  or post your poems. Postal address details on the competition page. Remember not to put your name on the poems but please include a cover sheet. 

Good luck.
