Something a little different - 2013 Pendle War Poetry Competition

In a slight departure from the subject of the First World War, I thought I would tell you about the Pendle War Poetry Competition.

I know from experience how hard it is to gain recognition for one's poems, nevertheless I keep on with my own work when the Female Poets of the First World War allow me. . .

Last year's competition drew entries from around the world.  

Poems do not have to be about 'war' but they do need to be about some sort of conflict.  For instance among last year's entries was an amazing poem about the poaching of animals in Africa and another about domestic violence.

Open to all.
