This free to enter writing competition is for the Keats-Shelley Prize of £3,000. To enter you'll need to write a poem about Liberty, or an essay about the romantics and their circles (or both - you can submit two of each.)

To be honest, I'm not absolutely sure I understand the question, so I'll be sticking with romance, rather than romantics.

Are you familiar with the hymn, or in possesion of interesting facts about Keats or Shelley?

    1. I've seen odder competitions, Alex. (Is odder a word?)

  2. Wow, that's a generous prize. But who doesn't love Keats and Shelly? :)

    1. Me? I don't doubt their talent, but they're not my first choice of reading material.

  3. Hi Patsy - love the rose! To write a poem that both Keats and Shelley excelled at ... seems a little stress making - I'll stay grounded and smell the roses instead! Cheers Hilary
