For those who follow the poetry news, it seems things aren’t going to plan at The Poetry Society…
However, I’m seeing this as an incentive to get writing!
I’m just printing off my poem, “Craft”, for the Elmet Trust poetry prize (closing date 15th July) and hopefully can send off a poem for the National Poetry Competition later today.
The National Poetry Competition is judged by Colette Bryce, John Glenday and Jackie Kay and closed on 31st October 2011 (see details on site above).
It’s looking like it’s going to be another gorgeous day – even if we all nearly melted onto the tarmac yesterday – so it seems like an opportune moment to gambol in the fields and write a poem, if you can get past your hayfever.
