The National Poetry Anthology Competition is now open, and entry is free, with a £1000 first prize.
"Because the competition is now the biggest free-to-enter annual public poetry competition in the UK, we've decided to rewqard the winner with a cash prize," said its editor, Peter Quinn.
"We anticipate an even bigger response this year, as the competition keeps on growing, and now offers a cash prize."
Entry is free and each winner represents his or her town in the anthology. They also receive a free copy of the book. All the winners from each town (last year there were over 250) then get to vote for their favourite poem in the book and the author receives the UK Poetry Champion trophy and £1000.
To enter, send three poems on any subject (up to 25 lines - including blank lines - and 160 words each) to United Press at the address below by 30th June 2011.
