You now have two weeks to enter your poetry pamphlets for the Fledgling Award for first solo publications by poets over 40. Scroll down to the previous post but one for more details. Some wonderful pamphlets have come in so far!
Also, our European Union poems will drop into your inbox from June 1st. I have the Nest filled to the brim with daily Eurogoodies until 15th June – after that there are eight more days until the Referendum and I am hoping against hope that you vote IN with both your hearts and your heads. See the previous post for details. I can see how much you poets love France, Sapin, Italy and Greece, but if you have a poem about somewhere further north or east, let’s have them! We are celebrating all the good reasons for staying European. Whether it is la dolce vita, l’esprit de l’escalier, schadenfreude or duende – we want to know.
