Poetry competition

Mandy Pannett from Slipstream Poets is judging the Psychiatry Research Poetry competition 2013. The closing date is 30th June and poems can be on any theme up to 50 lines. First prize is £150.

I'm currently reading Mandy's new collection 'All the Invisibles', a magical mix of humour and pathos with many nods to Mandy's love of history, mythology and legends. I love her playful sense of humour, which shines throughout this collection. Highly recommended.

  2. Poetry isn't really my thing, Tracy - but good luck to anyone who gives it a go.

    1. I keep trying to release my inner poet, but sometimes feel she'd best stay where she is...

  4. Not sure this is one for me. The only thing that shines through my poetry is my lack of ability to write decent poetry!

    1. Well, that shouldn't stop you Patsy. Only joking, but with your luck lately on competitions (skill more than luck) you could surprise yourself!
