The Plough Prize for poetry

The Plough Prize has been going now for 7 years. Entries are invited in three categories:

- Open Poem (up to 40 lines)
- Short Poem (up to 10 lines)
- Poem for Children (length unrestricted)

Deadline: November 30th 2009

Judge: Alison Brackenbury

Fee: £4 per poem (£4.35 for email) £14 for 4 poems (email or post).

Prizes: 1st £500, 2nd £200, 3rd £100

Each entry should have an entry form.

Every poet whose entry is postmarked before November 1st and who provides a stamped, self-addressed envelope clearly marked 'TB' will receive a free tick box critique of each poem entered. Online entrants whose entry is received before November 1st may request free tick box critiques to be sent via email, but email critiques are not available for postal entries. Please allow up to eight weeks for delivery of your free critique. (This is worth doing I think)
