Penfro Festival Competition 2020

Can you write poetry that digs deep into the eco-system and asks challenging questions, as well as being beautiful and full of subtle music? Can your poetry sow the seeds of ideas? Then this new competition is for you.

A competition with a 'green' theme (interpret as broadly as you like). The competition will tie in with the 'Loving the Earth' Green Fair weekend later this summer at Rhosygilwen in Wales, where winners will be announced.

There is a top prize of £300 to be won.

The judge is poet Adam Horovitz, whose second full collection of poems, The Soil Never Sleeps, was published by Palewell Press in 2018. It was written over several seasons on six pasture farms in England and Wales, all of which eschew conventional, chemical-driven farming practice in favour of ecologically minded, biodiversity-friendly farming.
