Kenyan Orphan Charity Poetry Competition

From Sheenagh Pugh at Good God! There's writing on both sides of the page.
Donate £5 to a Kenyan Charity and maybe win a poetry competition too.

Judge: John Hegley.

It's short poems. Poems must not exceed 30 lines (not including title) but you can enter online.

FEES: Each poem submitted will cost £5.00 including subsequent poems. Only sterling ( cheques,postal orders or money orders will be accepted) . Please make cheques payable to: Educating Kenyan Orphans.
So that will cut out most Irish and American poets. Stupid. Paypal is so easy to set up.

Deadline: 7th June 2010

PRIZES

First Prize £1000
Second Prize £500
Third Prize £300
Fourth Prize £200
PRIZE PRESENTATIONS

There will be a reading given by John Hegley at the Rook Lane Chapel, Bath Street, Frome, Somerset.

The winners will receive their prizes and be able to read their poems at the reading on the 17th July 2010.

It’s great to do charity and be a part of a social cause! It takes a lot of efforts and patience to raise money for various social causes.
