This year the competition was different. The subject was :-
A poem on an object
Part, or all of the poem must be written in some way on the object itself.
The ‘object’ can be anything you wish, provided it can be brought to the exhibition of entries at our meeting on Tuesday 29th October at the Helyar Arms, East Coker.
The poem can be of any length or style but should be related to the object in some way and must be written by the entrant.
We do need the poems (but not the objects) by 1st October so that the judge has chance to read the poems free from the distractions of the exhibition evening. However the judge’s decision will be made at this exhibition, when the judge has seen how the poem and object relate.
There is no charge for entry to this competition but we will accept only one entry per person.
The prize will (as usual) be something apt and fitting for the subject.
Poems can be emailed to info at eastcokerpoetry.org.uk
