Some thoughts on entering poetry competitions by A.C. Clarke
As an inveterate entrant of
competitions – including this one – I always read with interest any
comments by the judges on what they are looking for in a poem. At
the same time, I am well aware that whatever they say the poems they
finally choose will appear to some less successful entrants not to
fulfil the stated criteria nearly as well as their own poems!
