Members’ Poetry Competition

Poems Inspired by History

Members are invited to submit poems of up to 40 lines that are in some way inspired by history. The judge will be our November speaker, Zoe Mitchell.
The competition opens November 8th and will close at the end of Thursday, December 20th. The winner will be announced at our January meeting where we hope to hear some of the successful entries. The title is not included in the line count. The winner will receive our poetry trophy and Zoe will provide brief written comments on each piece entered. Entry is free. You may email your entries to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or pass them to Richard Buxton at the December social meeting.

Standard member rules apply. You are permitted to enter up to three poems.
