Mslexia Poetry Competition

Women poets ONLY. I don't think we're allowed to say poetess anymore more. Like Teacheress, manageress, authoress, doctoress, gardeness, directress, bloggress, hairdress, understress, iconfess, canugess, omygodwhatamess, etc it's died a death.

The closing date for the Mslexia Women’s Poetry Competition is just over a week away

Enter online or by freepost.
Deadline: 26 July 2010.

For full details go to:

If you are stuck for inspiration take a look at the five new poetry workshops on their website:

Judge: Vicki Feaver
1st Prize: £1,000
2nd Prize: £500
3rd Prize: £250
22 other finalists will receive £25 each.

All winning poems will be published in Mslexia.

The entry fee of £5 allows you to enter up to three poems.

I think that's a great idea as 3 poems gives the judge a much better idea of what you have. One poem can be so much down to luck.

Having said that, I've never got in...yet
