I found this on the Poetry Library website (http://www.poetrylibrary.org.uk/competitions/) but the actual competition site is a bit unclear as to whether we are still in time to submit! I hope so…
Theatre Cloud, in conjunction with the Touring Consortium Theatre Company and their new UK touring production of Pat Barker’s Regeneration, is making a call out for you to write POETRY ABOUT WAR and BECOME A WAR POET OF TODAY. We want your response to images of war in poetry. We are looking for the war poets of TODAY. 1st prize: £500, 2 runners up will each win £250. All three poems will also receive a public reading of their poem during the last week of Regeneration.
