Women's Poetry Competition 2021 

Our Women’s Poetry Competition opened on 1 September in two categories: Poetry (single poem), and Pamphlet. Award-winning poet Pascale Petit will be judging our single poem competition this year, with Amy Wack of Seren Books judging the pamphlets. 

The winner of the Poetry Competition will receive a whopping £2,000, plus publication in Mslexia; and the winner of our Pamphlet Competition will get £250 plus publication by Seren Books. As well as runner up prizes for the Poetry competition, we'll be awarding £250 to the best poem by an unpublished poet. 

The closing date for both categories is 6 December 2021.
