Angels & Devils poetry competition
« on: May 02, 2011, 02:09:09 PM »
The task is to write a poem of no more than 30 lines about family relationships in English or Dutch. We are looking for poems that look at one’s relatives in an original way; we are especially interested in poems that use a personal experience to create general empathy. Provided it touches on relationships, everything goes, happy or sad, touching or funny, as long as it expresses your original voice in content as well as form.

Name: Angels & Devils Poetry Competition.
Stating date: 2 April 2011
Closing Date: 31 December 2011
Entry fee: none
Prize: £100 plus publication in the Holland Park Press online magazine
Organised by: Holland Park Press

More information is available from the Holland Park Press website.
