A Baker’s Dozen : A Time To Think
Strange days are these and if nothing else the unprecedented times we live in are giving us all an opportunity to think about the world, our lives and what about it all we would like to change.
With ‘A Baker’s Dozen’ we want poets to take a step outside of their normal work and projects and collate thirteen of their poems that have something to say. These could be work you have created in recent times, about how your life has changed or it could look forward and try and describe a world that is a little better than the one before. It is, of course, entirely up to you. It could even be something completely different that sparks your synapses in different ways entirely. You choose.
The winning entry will see the poet have their Baker’s Dozen published in the Autumn in pamphlet form and receive 100 copies of the work.
This is an open competition and we are actively encouraging all poets, whatever their age or experience.
