Deadline nears for town poets


POETS from Warrington have until the end of June to bid to become the local “poetry champion.”
One poet will represent the town in the annual “Best of UK” poetry book.
Entry is free and, like all other winners, the Warrington winner will receive a free copy of the book. The overall winner also receives £1,000.
Editor Paul Quinn said: “The National Poetry Anthology is designed to encourage new writers.
“It’s now the biggest free-to-enter annual poetry contest in the UK. We picked 257 town winners last year but we want the new edition to include a winner from every town and village in the area. So far, we haven’t had enough entries to achieve that”
Entrants should send three unpublished poems, on any subject, up to 25 lines, including blank lines and 160 words each, to United Press, Admail, 3735, London EC1B 1JB by June 30. A loose stamp should be enclosed for a reply.
