Hungry Hill have a new competition for poems on any aspect of politics, news, and current affairs, with a first prize of €100; all shortlisted poems will be included in an online anthology, and the authors will be invited to a public reading in January 2012. (In Cork, probably - to the best of my knowledge they are based in County Cork.)
The entry fee is €5 for up to three poems, and the closing date for entries is 16 December 2011.
Cherry Smyth - a wonderful poet - will judge.
