The maximum number of poems per entrant is 3.

Entry fee: €5 (covers maximum entry of up to 3 poems)

I think an entry of 3 poems is a very good idea. One poem is such a lottery.

Send your poem(s) along with a cover letter with name, address, and phone number and/or email address, and title(s) of each poem submitted.

Post entries to North West Words Poetry Prize 2014, 54 Thornberry, Letterkenny, Co. Donegal.

No on-line submissions so I would imagine the number of entries will be lower, greater chance of winning? A shortlist but only one prize.

A shortlist will be published on on North West Words’ Facebook page and at North West Words’ Christmas event in Café Blend mid-December.

The winning poet will be notified on Thursday, 15 January 2015

The winner of the competition will be announced and prize awarded at North West Words in Café Blend, Letterkenny, on Thursday, 29 January 2015.
