Buxton Poetry Competition Deadline

Friday, 1st April 2011 (all day)

This event is in the past.

Welcome to Buxton
Poetry Competition News - March 2011

 ------------------------------

---------------------------------------





There are still two weeks to go until the closing date of Buxton Poetry
Competition on 1st April. Plenty of time to get writing!



Our theme this year is Fire - a subject which seems to have really
ignited the creative spark in poets of all ages. I've heard ideas about
bonfire night, a house fire, candles, the Sheffield steel industry, a
cosy pub with a blazing fire, an amazing sunset, and many more great
ways to interpret this theme.



The Open category is just £5 to enter and has a top prize of £300 while
our Youth and Children's categories are free to enter with the chance
to win book tokens.



Winners will be announced at an award ceremony in July which will
officially open the unique poetry and photography exhibition on display
at the Devonshire Dome throughout Buxton Festival.
