ENTRIES HAVE NOW OFFICIALLY CLOSED FOR THE 2018 Pendle War Poetry Competition.
Any entry received from now on will be held over and entered into the 2019 competition instead.
So, what happens next?
This year’s judges have been appointed and will be announced here on the competition website in the next week or so.
We hope to announce the competition results starting from 1st November – with one category being announced on the website per day.
We will publish the winning poems online but we also produce an anthology of all the shortlisted poems in each category. The winners in each section will receive a free copy of the anthology as part of their prize and everybody else who has a poem included will have the opportunity to buy copies at a special reduced price in case they want to give them as presents to family and friends.
Details of which poems have been shortlisted will be posted on the website once the winners have been announced and information for ordering copies of the book will also be posted.
Please note that we are only be available to contact the WINNERS in each category and, to find out if you have been shortlisted, you’ll need to keep an eye on the website and Facebook page for the announcements.
So – keep your eye on this website as all the competition news will posted here!
