Hidden Voices Competition 2019 with Bespoke Verse

June 13, 2019

According to the government’s Taking Part survey, 3.8% of the population write poetry – that’s two million people. Are you one of them?

For the 25th anniversary of National Poetry Day on 3rd October, Bespoke Verse is running a competition celebrating the UK’s hidden poets, those writing poetry just for themselves, or who may have created just one or two special poems written to mark important events in their lives.

Flair will count for more than polish, and a sense of true feeling shared and communicated is crucial. The competition is open until 1st August. The winners will receive a copy of their poem typeset, designed, printed and framed. The entry form is here, and for full details visit the Bespoke Verse Facebook page.

You can find out more about the competition and Bespoke Verse in this blogpost written by founder Joanna Miller, and read the press release here.
