Closing date: 31 July 2015. It’s late, so I’ve copied this from the ever-helpful Poetry Library website (http://www.poetrylibrary.org.uk/competitions/)
While we’re inviting entries about all aspects of caring, this year we’re particularly interested in poems and short stories that respond to our 50th Anniversary message: no one should have to care alone. Prizes: A total of £300 in high street vouchers will be provided in prizes, plus other prizes from leading literary organisations. We will publish the winning entries on the Carers UK website in the autumn and, depending on the number of entries, we hope to produce an anthology or an e-book featuring a selection of the poems and stories. Judge: Cheryl Moskowitz will be judging the Carers UK creative writing competition for the second year. You can submit up to three poems, each being no longer than 40 lines. Short story: you can submit one short story of up to 1,000 words. Entries must be unpublished, in English, and not a translation of another author’s work.
Entry Fee: £Free
