Competitions

  • Many poets send their poems to competitions. This can be a good way to find out what other people think of your writing.
  • We add competitions to this list when organisers send us information.
  • To enter the competition, send a stamped addressed envelope to the competition's address, and they will send you an entry form, or ask for an entry form by phone or email.
  • The Poetry Library accepts no liability in connection with the information contained in the list [boring adult stuff!]
