u3a - Poetry Competition 2022

Poetry Competition 2022

This year, we are asking for poems on the theme of ‘new’. Poems must be no longer than 16 lines, plus the title, and all are required to have a rhyming component. 

Entries will be assessed by group judges who will select the top 10 entries. An overall panel of judges will select the top three, which will feature in Third Age Matters.

Please read the rules here before submitting.

Please use this form to submit your poem, only after you have read all the rules - Submission Form

The winning poems will appear in Third Age Matters magazine and on the website here, after publication.

For further advice, support and news contact Marcia Humphries, u3a Subject Adviser for Creative Writing
