Foyle Young Poets deadline

Deadline for entries 31 July 2010

“Becoming a Foyle Young Poet is about more than just winning a competition. It is like being given the keys to doors you didn’t know existed – suddenly there are clear directions you can take your poetry in. Entry is free and can be done instantly online – what are you waiting for? Let your poem be heard!” Phoebe Power, Foyle Young Poet of the Year 2009

“I lie awake at 3 a.m. thinking of reasons not to send my work off. Maybe I’ll write something better next month or next year. The more enlightened part of me knows that one of the best poems ever written is William Carlos Williams’s apology for eating someone else’s plums; that we can only understand the great themes, the political, the spiritual through specifics and in strange, small, and seemingly insignificant things. So all I’m saying is don’t be like me lying there terrified at 3 a.m.: send in your work!” – Luke Kennard
