…is that many competitions and publishers count any work published on your blog, or even, in some cases, an online writing community, as ‘published’ and may not accept it. I now publish on my blog only writing that has either already been published, or that I am not intending to enter in a competition or to submit for publication.
For those of you who haven’t already stumbled upon this excellent community and resource site for artists of all disciplines, check it out: http://www.ideastap.com/
It does have age limits for some of the pitches – if, like me, you’re rather older than 25, do keep an eye on the age specifications in the rules for each pitch/comp/opportunity/etc.
Lighthouse literary journal in collaboration with art:language:location are seeking creative responses to the city-wide art exhibition A:L:L that opens in Cambridge on October 17th. Creative-critical prose, and poetry which pushes the boundaries of ekphrasis is encouraged, conceptual/visual pieces are also welcomed. The deadline for submissions is 31st October, for more details on Lighthouse and the submissions guidelines, please see the website www.gatehousepress.com/lighthouse/ and for more information on art:language:location exhibition venues and events, please visit their website www.artlanguagelocation
Poem Pigeon is a site that’s free to join, for posting and sharing poems. There are regular, free-to-enter competitions on the site, to tempt your muse. The next theme is ‘Earth’, with a deadline of 31st October. Get writing, and let me know how you do 🙂
I’m only listing free-to-enter competitions as, if you are just starting out, you can otherwise spend a fortune. If you have anything poetry-related to share, please get in touch via email: firstname.lastname@example.org – thank you!
Please note: publication on this site does not mean publications/competition organisers have been vetted – please do your own checks before submitting.
