iYeats Poetry Competition

I dunno about this one. It doesn't set me alight really.

There's one main prize 300 Euro, another for 16 - 25 year olds and 10 commendeds (presumably no dosh, just glory and a cert)

Fee: 5 Euro

Deadline: Friday June 11th 2010.

Judges: Vincent Woods and Rita Ann Higgins

Prize giving and a public reading of the shortlisted poets will take place in the Hawk’s Well Theatre during the annual Yeats International Summer School 2010.

Enter Online only. Files with entries must be in Word format (Word 97 - 2003) and submitted via our online entry form.

All Prize winners will have their poems published on the Hawkswell Website and will be offered the chance to to read their work at an informal ceremony during the 2010 Annual Yeats Summer School.

More details on the website.

Isn't "informal ceremony" an oxymoron?

Maybe it's the dress code, in case the commendeds showed up in black tie, long dresses and tiaras.

I think they might be afeared of red shoes, you know us women writers... and whats wrong with tiaras? must go dust mine...

Emerging Writer said...

Ah but imagine the embarrassment if you dusted yours down and everyone else, the audience, the judges, other commendeds was wearing flat caps, or hard hats or something.
I do wear a tiara myself from time to time.
