Cafe Writers Competition 2017

If all readings were like the Cafe Writers night I took part in then I’d do readings every night  Ali   Smith

Poetry Competition for 2017 –

Deadline 30th Nov 2017

Not only am I contributing editor for Frost Magazine, I am also an author with Arrow, Penguin Random House. Years ago now I had my break into the world of published novel writing through a writing prize and am a firm believer in them. Here is an acclaimed competition for poets. Give entering it serious consideration.

Not only are does it offer  £2000 in prizes but the sole judge this year is Liz Berry. There is no sifting. Should you do well, how about that for validation of your skill?

Entry details at www.cafewriters.co.uk/home/poetry-competition 

The competition funds the Cafe Writers’ programme and allows them to pay visiting writers properly. Café Writers is a Norwich based grass-roots writers’ network supporting and showcasing work by established writers in all genres.  It also encourages and champions new work by emerging writers.  It is run entirely by volunteers that are passionate about encouraging wider participation and excellence in literature.
