Poetry Competitions

So, you're sitting on a folder of poems? A notepad full of ideas and sketches? Are you entering competitions and submitting to magazines for publication? If you answered yes to the first two questions but no to the last one, then ask yourself why? Unless you're writing purely for your own pleasure and entertainment then you really should submit to competitions and magazines. Don Paterson believes a poem is not complete until it is published. Poetry is a communication between poet and reader, its a public art, so please get your shit together! :)

For a comprehensive list of national  poetry magazines check

The Eric Gregory award deadline is 31st October, so you need to send to be quick. But you have until Monday to submit online to the National Poetry Competition.

For a list of poetry magazines, is a great resource.
