Foreign Voices Poetry Competition
Deadline November 30 (must be received by this date). Neutral free contest gives 200 pounds and online publication for a previously unpublished poem up to 50 lines about some aspect of migration by a poet age 18+. Enter by email only. Contest sponsor London-based Holland Park Press Ltd. publishes literary fiction and poetry, placing special emphasis on bringing the work of Dutch authors to the English-language market. Holland Park's contests are usually one-time events, replaced by a new themed contest next year. For 2017, editors say, "The opportunities to reflect on this theme are endless. Poems can be triggered by any aspect of or point of view about migration. We don't have to agree with your opinions, but we do want to be touched in some way by your poem, inspired by its imagery and, of course, we look for a beautiful use of language."
