Foreign Voices Poetry Competition

Competition deadline: 30th November 2017
Holland Park Press invite you to write a poem about migration.
We’re inviting you to send us poems that deal with the subject of migration.
People move to another country for many reasons ranging from loving someone to fleeing from war and persecution. Are you an immigrant, emigrant, refugee, or are any of your friends, relatives or neighbours? How do you react to what you read on social media about migration? Are you involved in supporting immigrants or deal with them in an official capacity?
Poems can be triggered by any aspect of migration and the opportunities to reflect on this theme are endless.
We don’t have to agree with your opinions, but we do want to be touched in some way by your poem, inspired by its imagery and, of course, look for a beautiful use of language.
