Yes! Yes! Yes!

Thanks to Bea Charles for telling me that The Lady are looking for 'love poems for married couples'. These should be emailed to editors@lady.co.uk by 25th of this month. The prize is publication for the winner and a copy of Love Poems for five runners-up.

I've sent in our wedding vows – although I can't remember whether or not we were technically married at the moment I read them, and I did borrow quite heavily from Pam Ayres' so they probably can't publish them anyway.

That's a cute picture from you wedding day.

Sorry, but I don't think the prize is that great, so I won't be bothering to enter.

Patsy said...

@ Alex – thank you.

@ Sharon – It isn't massively generous, I agree.

Lovely wedding photo, Patsy! Thanks for the heads up about this contest. Do you know if they would take a humorous ditty? And if they would take previously published poems?

Patsy said...

@ Fay – sorry I only know what's shared here (that's all the information they had in the magazine). If you do decide to try a previouslly published one. my advice would be to tell them that's what you've done and let them decide if it's OK.
