Boyle Poetry Competition


A smaller competition, with smaller prizes and consequentally a smaller number of entries.

Fee: 5 euro per poem
Prize: 300 Euro for the winner and 4 runners up of 50 Euro. 10 highly recommended poems get not cash, just the glory
Deadline: There doesn't seem to be one. Bit of an oversight. The prize giving is on Sunday 27th July at the Boyle Arts Festival
Maximum length: 40 lines
Entry Form on the website
Judge: Peter Fallon

Peter is giving a reading on Sunday 27th July at the Royal Hotel at 12.30pm. The reading will be followed by the presentation of prizes to the winner and runners up of the 2008 Boyle Arts Festival Poetry Competition and by readings of the winning and highly recommended poems. This will be followed by a workshop.

The Boyle Arts Festival will also include readings by John Banville, Bernard MacLaverty and local writers
