#micropoem14 Competition – 7 – 14 July 2014 inclusive

Poetry in 140 characters? What would Brontë have made of tweet poems?

“‘Tis moonlight, summer moonlight” – Emily Jane Brontë

Following the success of last year’s micro-poetry competition, the Centre for New Writing and the School of Arts, Languages and Cultures are pleased to announce the launch of #micropoem14.

This year’s theme is ‘English Summer‘.

All you need to do to enter is tweet your micropoem with the hashtag #micropoem14.

Your micropoem must be in English, only one micropoem per person, your micropoem must be themed around the English Summer.

The competition will run between 7 and 14 July 2014 inclusive and prizes for the best 3 poems include 2 x tickets to a Literature Live event in autumn 2014; signed Jeanette Winterson book; and a book voucher. The winning micropoems will be published on the Manchester Review.

The competition will be judged by a team from the Centre for New Writing including the Centre’s co-director and poet John McAuliffe, whose 3rd book is Of All Places; Janet Rogerson and Eleanor Ward.
