Secondly, a new competition announcement:

Call for Poems

We will again be collaborating with Waveney and Blyth Arts on a number of Walks and Workshops over the summer. In particular we have been asked whether members have written or are prepared to write poems about the old railway that used to run up to Southwold. There will be a walk along the old track from Blythborough to Southwold on August 1st and the organiser Ann McClarnon would like to have some poetry about the line read at different parts of the walk, either by the poets themselves or other behalf.

Aldeburgh Gazette invites poetry submissions

The Aldeburgh Gazette is a fortnightly publication, and it has begun to invite submissions of poetry from members.

Some have already been printed, so this is an interesting new outlet for your poems.

Send your poems plus a short, outline biography to Peter Adshead, aldegazeditor@btconnect.com. Submissions have to be submitted by 4pm on the Thursday the week before publication. The publisher’s decision is final and there is no guarantee of inclusion of items.
