2018 Charles Causley International Poetry Competition submission deadline

November 5

The 2018 Charles Causley International Poetry Competition will be judged by Causley Trust patron Sir Andrew Motion. When asked what he will be looking for in the winning entries, he said:

“I’m looking for poems that surprise me – not by their ostentation, but by making me see, think, remember, recover things I’ve forgotten I already know.”

The 1st prize winner will receive £2,000 plus a one week writing residency at Cyprus Well, Charles Causley’s former home in Launceston. The 2nd prize winner will receive £250 and the third prize winner will receive £100.
