South Downs Poetry Competition 2020

Original unpublished poems on any theme are invited for the

Binsted Prize: £300, £150, £50 

Entry fees

£5.00 for the first poem, £4.00 for subsequent poems, but poets aged 16-25 can enter for £3.00 per poem

Closing date Tuesday 6 April 2021

We hope to organise a poetry evening in Binsted Church (BN18 0LL) in June 2021 when prize winners will be invited to read their poems, and the judge will give a reading, but cannot yet plan this for sure. We also intend to produce an anthology of the winning and commended poems as a record and celebration of the 2021 poetry competition. The winning poem will be published in the South Downs Poetry Festival magazine, Poetry & All That Jazz.
