Wolverhampton Literature Festival: Poetry Competition UK

  • Crimson Education

Multiple Competition


In association with Wolverhampton Literature Festival, Write Out Loud is proud to organise the WoLF Poetry Competition 2020, open to poets across the globe. The theme for this year's competition is 'vision'. Why? Because it's 20/20, of course. Use this as a prompt to explore any related theme – hindsight, a visit to the opticians, or dreams of a better world. Write about whatever you fancy, however it inspires you, and send your entries in before December 31st!

The following prizes will be awarded:

First place: £400

Second place: £150

Third place: three prizes of £25

The prize-giving will take place as part of the WoLF festival over the weekend of 31 January - 2 February, 2020. Winning and shortlisted poets will be invited to read their entry at this event.
