The Waveney & Blyth Arts annual Poetry Competition is now open and we invite submissions of poems of up to 30 lines inspired by river dwellers, whether kingfisher or otter, flag iris or eel, rush weaver or fisherman.
Whether you were inspired by our recent A River Runs Through It event or other river stimulus find yourself a sharp pencil and a fresh notepad, a quiet spot and space to be creative, and capture your own thoughts and images.
This year’s judge is poet and author Dr Jos Smith, who is also Lecturer in Contemporary Literature at the University of East Anglia. The top three entries will be invited to the Arts & Eats lunch on 20 September where certificates and prizes will be presented.
Cost: £3 for one submission, £5 for two, or £7 for three.
Closing date for submissions: 10 August 2018
