Keeping forward

The Forward Arts Foundation offers several poety competitions. Prizes range from £1,000 for a single poem to £15,000 for a collection.

The website says these are the most coveted poetry awards. I expect they're right.

I'm trying to be a poet, but don't think I've reached this standard yet.

I don't mind reading poetry, but I've never quite got the bug. :)

That's an impressive prize pot. Sadly doggerel doesn't attract the same standard of respect, so that's me out.

Patsy said...

That's me out then, Hilary!

Patsy said...

Me too, Mac - though not the time I had to get up for it!

Patsy said...

Keep at it, Maggie.
