The 2011 Hackney Citizen Valentine’s Day Poetry Competition is now open and receiving entries.
The winner will walk away with a bottle of Le Mesnil Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru champagne, courtesy of wine merchants Aleksic & Mortimer.
A selection of the best entries will be published in the February 2011 edition of the Hackney Citizen.
The competition is open to anyone with a connection to the borough; it doesn’t matter if you are an established poet or just dabble in verse now and then.
When entering the competition, make sure your poem is no longer than 20 lines, unpublished, and in English.
Entry to the competition is free. Each entrant may submit up to three poems.
Submit your entries by email to email@example.com or by post to:
