The 3rd Ó Bhéal Five Words Poetry Competition runs until the end of January 2016.
Each Tuesday at noon (GMT), five words are posted on the competition page at http://www.obheal.ie/blog/?page_id=2371.
Entrants have one week to compose and submit poems that include all five words given for the week.
A prize of 500 euros will be awarded to one winner, and if available, invited to read at Ó Bhéal’s ninth anniversary event in April, 2016 (an additional travel fee of 100 euro plus B&B accommodation will be provided for this).
The shortlisted poems and winning entry will also be published in Five Words Vol IX – the next annual anthology of five word poems, launched at the same event.
This year’s judges are Marie Coveney and Colm Scully.
