Cold Weather Competition

Tuesday 22 January 2013
With the weather so cold outside, this seems like a worthy poetry competition to mention.
Competition to help homeless and win publication of a short poetry collection
If you'd like to win publication of your own short poetry collection by Ward Wood Publishing while helping the homeless in three Cold Weather Shelters, now's the time to enter the International Lumen/Camden Poetry competition. You win on the strength of just one poem, and as none of the organisers take any commission you can be sure money is passed to the Cold Weather shelters just as they most need it. You could see your short collection well promoted this time next year, and everyone wins by helping those in need. Don't wait for the deadline of February 14th - the worst weather is now so let's get moving.
