Event Details

Open to poets from across the globe and welcoming poems on any and every subject!

Poems must be in English, and no more than 50 lines long. Poems must not have been previously published in any public forum (either in print or on a website), nor should they be currently submitted for future publication elsewhere.

First prize in this competition is £300, with a second prize of £125, and three third prizes of £25 each.

The winning poets will be invited to read their poems at Morecambe Poetry Festival. Their poems will also be included in this year’s festival anthology.

Copyright of the poems remains with the author, but Morecambe Poetry Festival reserves the right to publish successful entries in the festival anthology and on the festival Facebook page.

We are keen to encourage quality, so suggest writers to check their stories before submitting using Prowritingaid. They have free and paid versions and are the best writing software we know to help improve grammar, readability and spelling check for repetition, ‘sticky’ sentences and suggest alternatives.
