Children’s free competition

The Verve Poetry Festival in Birmingham, UK, has a competition this year, for poems that mention the city of Birmingham! There is a charge for adults to enter (judge: Hannah Silva), but: “The children’s category is open to any child in Year 11 or below in September 2016 (UK) or aged 15 or under on 1st September 2016 (non-UK).” The judge for the Children’s Category is Emma Wright, who runs The Emma Press. Deadline for both children and adults (new, extended deadline for the latter- ignore any references to an earlier date) is 30 September. More information here.

Submit to The Emma Press

Lovely British indie publisher The Emma Press is open to pamphlet submissions until  Sunday 13th December 2015. I think the submissions can be from anywhere in the world (but do check). Whilst there isn’t a fee as such, you must have bought an Emma Press publication within the same calendar year as your submission – an ebook is fine.
