Edwin Morgan Poetry Competition

Are you feeling lucky, punk?

This is a high prize money competition so the competition is fierce. Read the winners from last year and see if you think you write the right kind of poems. (I won't be entering)

With a first prize of £5000 and lesser prizes of £1000, £500 and £50 (x 2), this is one of the richest poetry prizes in Britain and last year attracted over 1000 entries. This year's judges are the poets Vicki Feaver and Kona MacPhee.

The closing date is 9am on Friday 10th June 2011.

Maximum of 60 lines per poem

Entrants can submit up to 3 (three) poems, provided the appropriate entry fee is included: the entry fee is £5 per poem

You can enter online. All details here
