£10.00 GBP, £5.00 GBP

At Wundor, our aim is to champion adventurous writing in all its forms. There is no specific theme for our 2018 poetry contest, other than that we are looking to be surprised. Whatever approach you take to your writing, now is the time to enter your boldest and most imaginative work, to impress us and to stand out among the rest. We encourage entrants to approach this contest in innovative and interesting ways. 

The prize is £500. The winner and two runners-up will have their poems published on the Wundor website. Their work will be strongly considered for publication in print, too.

The deadline is 30 November 2018 and winners will be announced by the end of the year.

We very much look forward to hearing from you.
