The Pride and the Passion

Apparently the pride and the passion relates to football (or soccer to you Americans out there) Those of you who know me, may know I don't do football (or rugby or cricket or GAA or or or) but here's a competition for those of you who do. Yes, I'm that generous.

Closing date for entries is 5pm, Monday 14th July 2014.

There are three categories
  • short fiction (including flash fiction) and non-fiction of up to 1000 words
  • poetry up to 40 lines 
  • football chants up to three verses
Theme: football memories and experiences

Three entries for a fee of £8. You can enter as many times as you wish. It's online entry, open to anyone anywhere in the world (over 16)  so I'm presuming it's Paypal.

Entries will be read and judged anonymously.

Prize: The top 20 entries will be published in a printed anthology with the top three from each category receiving a cash prize.

Full rules here and submissions here.

Competition entries will be judged by a panel of professionals, including, celebrated poet Ian McMillan, writer, editor and publisher Alex Davis and Derby County’s club captain Shaun Barker.
