Last chance to write a poem about Southport

NOW is your last chance to write a prizewinning poem about Southport. Because a poem about Southport could win you £1,000 in a free competition aimed at getting more people to write poetry.

It's free to enter this annual competition and it's open to all UK residents, young or old. All you have to do is send a poem about life in your own home Town or area to:-

Local Poem
United Press Ltd.
Admail 3735

You can also visit the competition's website.

The best poem will win £1,000 cash and you can send up to 3 entries, which must be no more than 25 lines (each blank line counts as 1 line) and 160 words each.

"It can even be about something or someone from the poet's home area. We find that poems written from personal observation and experience are the most heartfelt and expressive, so we're expecting some great entries from your readers. The contest is designed to encourage ordinary people to write poetry; to both express themselves and be more creative. Last year's winner was from Darwin in Lancashire and previous winners came from Leicester, Surrey, South Yorkshire, Bristol, Oxford, Stafford, Rotherham and Greater Manchester. Maybe this year the £1,000 will go to a poet from Southport or a neighbouring town. Winning poems have been about a river, a tower, a local character, village life and local history."
explained a United Press spokesman.

The closing date is 31 December 2014.
