A Writer On Writing: Help For Heroes Poetry Competition

Sally Jenkins brings news of a worthwhile competition.

When entering a writing competition it’s nice to think that your entry fee has gone to a worthy cause – it softens the blow of not making it to the short-list!

The Help For Heroes charity is running a poetry competition. First prize is £250 in Primark vouchers and there is no fixed entry fee but entrants are asked to donate at least a pound per poem and all money raised will go to the charity. http://www.helpforheroes.org.uk/?gclid=CIL5te255akCFcxzfAodFn1Lag

The judge is Peter Quinn, managing director of United Press and he is asking for “ …poems related to Help for Heroes. It could be a poem about an individual or it could be a poem with a message.”

The winner will also have their poem published in a general collection of modern poetry and will receive a free copy of the book as well as attending a prize presentation.

The closing date is November 11th 2011 and full details on how to enter can be found here. http://www.literaturewales.org/lit-comps/i/138522/
This is a cheap to enter competition for a worthy cause – why not give it a go?
