2019 Poetry Competition

The East Riding Festival of Words 2019 poetry competition is now open for entries. This year's theme is 'My Mind, My Thoughts'. Entries will be judged by a panel of published Yorkshire poets, led by James Nash. Poems are submitted anonymously, so each entry is judged on its own merits.
