Buxton Poetry Competition 2013 is now open!

Our theme in 2013 is History and Heritage. Poems could reflect your own history, tell the story of a person or event in history or be a much wider interpretation of this challenging theme. Download an entry pack and read winning poems from 2012 here

Indent issue 2

Last weekend for submissions to Indent issue 2; the annual literary print journal based at Staffordshire University’s Creative Writing Department, Stoke-on-Trent. “…we hope for high quality, international examples ( no, specimens) of volcanic prose & scintillating poetry that push the boundaries of what-is-what. Hybrid pieces: very welcome, as too are personal essays, heteroglossic texts that cannot be pinned down in any way.  WE are looking for NEW literatures that challenge the notion of genre. Hybrid and mash-up, blended & cognitive, alert & alternative. ” Go to http://deviljazz.wordpress.com/category/indent/ for more details
