The Warwickshire branch of the Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE) is running a poetry competition ‘to celebrate the beauty, tranquillity and diversity of the Warwickshire countryside’.

Sorry I’m not giving you much notice for this one but I’ve only just found out about it myself. I gave a talk at a Ladies Supper Club last week (which is a story in itself!) and one of the committee members mentioned the competition to me. She’s going to send in a poem herself so she made me promise (bless her!) that I wouldn’t enter. I promised – but she didn’t say anything about not telling anyone else!

The competition is ‘open to all’ (so you don’t have to live in Warwickshire). The poem can be any style or any length and multiple entries are accepted. Entry fee is £3 for seniors (ie: over 18) and £1 for juniors and the prizes are £50 and £25 respectively.

For a full list of all the rules, see the website here.

You’ll need to get your thinking caps on quickly for this one though. If you need some inspiration have a look at this site for some beautiful photos of Warwickshire. And good luck!
