The Worcestershire Poet Laureate is looking for previously unpublished poems for Remembrance Day—deadline 10 November 2017

Poet Laureate

poppies-2585930_1920To mark Remembrance Sunday I would like to compile a collection of poetry focusing on WW1 & WW2.

Many of you write about war and as long as poems have not been previously published these can be submitted. 

For those of you looking for a prompt I am using the Royal Mail stamp collection as stimuli.


Although we cannot accept poems with these direct quotations we can allow you to use them as a starting point.


Send poems in the body of an email, single spaced to worcspl[at]gmail[dot]com

send 1-3 poems, maximum 40 lines, previously unpublished poems

DEADLINE 10th November

poppy-741342_1920PLEASE NOTE due to the fast turn around of this project successful submissions will be notified with a link.

Poems will be LIVE on the 12th November to mark Remembrance Sunday.

poppy-2550279_1920Many thanks.
