Working Class Verse

UK poets have until 31 May 2017 to submit their poems to Culture Matters’ Bread and Roses Poetry Award, sponsored by Unite the Union. Copied from website:
The purpose of the new award is to encourage poets to focus on themes which are meaningful to working class people and communities, and to enable those communities to engage more with poetry. There is a £500 cash prize for the winner, £250 second prize and £100 third prize.
Entries should consist of three poems each no more than 50 lines long, and should be sent to by 31st May 2017.
