We are thrilled to announce that entries are now open for Seren’s Christmas Poetry Competition 2018.

The 2018 Christmas Poetry Competition is judged by Seren’s Poetry Editor, Amy Wack. You are invited to submit one poem for consideration, before the closing date (5 November). Poems must be on the theme of Christmas, and a maximum of 20 lines long. All submissions will be read and the winner will be announced on 26 November.

What is the prize? The winning poem will be circulated to all Seren’s publishing and literary friends as the official 2018 Christmas card. The winner will also receive 50 printed copies of the card to send to friends & family this Christmas.

How do I enter? Visit the Submittable Entry Page and upload your poem (as a Word Doc or PDF). On this page you will also find the guidelines and terms and conditions. Thank you and good luck to all those who enter, we look forward to reading your poems.

 

Last year the winning poem was ‘The Grey Mare’ by Mari Ellis Dunning, which takes inspiration from the Welsh Mari Lwyd tradition. You can buy Christmas cards with this poem here. Also available is the Twelve Poems for Christmas poetry pamphlet, which contains a varied festive selection of poems.
