Happiness Poetry Competition

I’ve had an email from Alex Black of PrintExpress.co.uk. Following on from their previous successful poetry competition (which I mentioned on this blog some months ago) they are running another FREE poetry competition to win £100.

Alex describes the competition as follows:

There’s a £100 prize, and no entry fee – so your readers have nothing to lose if they enter. (They also, of course, keep the rights to their poem, although we’d like to post the winning entry on our blog – with their permission).
The theme is on happiness (anything that will make us smile). There are, as ever, a few rules:
– Open to all
– No entry fee
– Poems must be in English, and no longer than 45 lines
– Must be the original work of the entrant
– Deadline is April 9th, 2012, with the winner to be announced shortly after
Full details, including the competition email address, can be found here.
So put on a smile and write a happy poem!

    Sounds good, Sally. Not sure I’ll have time to enter but as I have plenty to smile about, maybe I should give it a go.

    Thank you for this info, Sally. I will pass it on!

    Thanks for highlighting this one Sally. I rarely enter poetry competitions (for a good reason) but as my poems seem to make people smile & possibly not for the right reasons I might just have a go at this one…

      Hope you are successful, Tracy! (I don’t enter poetry competitions for a good reason either!)
