It already seems like August with harvest well underway and the seemingly never-ending heat. Is it too hot to write?
Our River Dwellers poetry competition is open for entries until 10 August so you have a couple of weeks left to get your entries in.
Retreat indoors to a cool space and let your imagination take you under the river, with cool green light and the gentle caress of the water. Imagine life on the river, be inspired by its wildlife or its history, and write no more than 30 lines of poetry to share with us.
This year’s judge is poet and author Dr Jos Smith, who is 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 at the Waveney Inn, Burgh St Peter, where certificates and prizes will be presented.
Please send your entry as an attachment in Word format or as a PDF to mappleby (at) tiscali (dot) co (dot) uk
Please add a ‘Reply Read Request’ if you require acknowledgement of receipt.
Each piece must have a title and be typed on one side of A4 – no indication of the author’s name should appear on this sheet.
Entries should be in a clear font eg Times New Roman and without illustrations or photos
