Leigh and Wigan Words Festival 2012
(Who doesn't want to go to Wigan?)
Judge: Daljit Nagra
Prizes: 1st: £1000; 2nd: £400; 3rd: £200
Deadline: Jan 21st 2012
poems up to 80 lines (which I would say would mean that a short poem would be less likely to win)
and written to the theme of Greenheart see: www.visitgreeheart.com
Themes I think can be tricky. If you haven't been lucky enough to visit greenheart before, have a good look at the website and jot down ideas for poems. Don't choose the first idea that comes into your head as penny to a pound it will have occured to many others too and Daljit will be bored of it by the time he reads yours.
Send entries in a S.A.E with £4 per entry, or £10 for three.
