As so many of you have taken up my weekly writing challenge and written a poem, I thought my market this week had better be for a poetry competition (it’s also a short story competition). The Ambit Summer Writing Competition 2015 closes on the 15th July 2015. Here is are the important details:
Prizes: First prize in each category is £500, second place £250 and £100 for third. The three winning poems and three winning stories will all be published in Ambit. The six winners will be invited to read with judges Dan O’Brien and Alison Moore at the launch on October 22nd 2015. This will take place in London.
Winners will be announced on the Ambit website on 1st September.
Entry Fee: £5 for each poem/story.
