Poetry on Loan poetry competition 2019!

It's Poetry on Loan competition time again! We're looking for poems on the theme Anniversary...

You should by now have seen posters in your local library advertising the 2019 Poetry on Loan poetry competition - and if you haven't seen them, have words with your library staff! It's free to enter for anyone living, working or studying in the West Midlands, and the prize for adults is a paid gig - for younger people it's a WH Smith voucher.

All the details are on our competition page. Why not have a go? The theme is Anniversary, because it's our 20th anniversary this year - but we encourage people to interpret the theme widely.
