Thanks for this, EW. I've entered each year, but alas, no luck. Plus I've never seen the calendar as they are always sold out v quick. Any ideas what 'type' of poem they favour?! Probabaly not my type, anyway...
Thanks for the Mitchelstown workshop plug (and compliments!). It went off well.

Last day to post is Monday 14th July.
Max 20 lines.
They tent to take mostly freeform. But having said that, maybe a form poem would stand out.
