Buxton Poetry Competition Four Weeks To Go!
There are now just four weeks to go until the closing date of the Buxton Poetry Competition 2012.
In this busy Olympic and Jubilee year when the world is focused on our country, we ask poets to reflect on what the world might see with the theme 'Welcome to Britain.'Competition judges Peter and Ann Sansom comment:'We're hoping this year's theme will bring in a really broad range of poems, reflecting our very varied society and great heritage. Poems that focus on a particular place or figure from history maybe, or on some British invention or (especially this Olympic year) the sports and games we play; even our distinctive (for better or worse) food and drink -- even the weather! -- any or all of these subjects might make a winning poem.'
Poems could also tackle darker issues such as immigration, last summer's riots, the economy or our environment. The options are endless.
Our top prize is £300 with other cash prizes available.
