Today, we are pleased to reveal the poems that have been included in the 2018 Selected Poems Anthology for Overseas adult entries.
We had hundreds and hundreds of entries for this category this year and the Anthology selection is based on the original "long list" that we used for judging purposes.
Everybody listed here can buy copies of the Anthology at a special reduced rate – please select the correct option of postage and packing to where you live on the dropdown menu.
You can also buy the Anthology via Amazon by clicking on the links at the right of the page but that costs more and is aimed at the general public rather than competition entrants.
(Note: Prize winners should NOT use this order link as they will receive an email shortly with separate information.)
To order copies, simply click on the "add to cart" link here and you can add extra copies in the cart view later:
