The Dead Cat Poetry Prize 2021

Throughout the history of civilisation, humans have lived cheek-by-whiskered-jowl with feline companions, and with consequent inevitability, mourned their loss.

The competition organisers recognise that it is hard for poetry about dead cats to find its way through established poetry contests, so this new prize is dedicated entirely to the topic.

First prize - £25
Second prize - £10
Third prize - £5
