The Plough Prize for Poetry

The Plough Prize 2013 is now open for online or postal entries.

Full results for all previous contests are available under 'past years', as are the winning poems and judges' comments and I recommend you have a read so you know what kind of thing they are looking for. I think they pre screen so the judge, this year Andrew Motion, only reads a selection.

Entry fee: £5 (Cheque or Paypal)

Open Poetry (up to 40 lines)

Prizes: 1st £1000, 2nd £500, 3rd £250

Deadline 30 November

I have a soft spot for the plough as I won first prize for a short poem a couple of years ago, thought this category doesn't seem to be running this year.
