WoLF poetry competition 2019
In association with Wolverhampton Literature Festival, Write Out Loud is proud to organise the WoLF Poetry Competition 2019, open to poets across the globe. The theme for this year's competition is 'wanderer...'. Use this as a prompt to explore the theme of travel, contemplation, or the city's football team's proud history – or something else entirely – whichever you wish, and whatever inspires you!

The following prizes will be awarded:
First place: £400
Second place: £150
Third place: three prizes of £25
The prize-giving will take place as part of the WoLF festival over the weekend of 1-3 Feb 2019. Winning and shortlisted poets will be invited to read their entry at this event.

The fee to enter is £4. If multiple poems are entered in the same submission, £10 will be charged for three poems and then £3 for each subsequent poem.

Poem length
Poems must be no more than 40 lines in length.

Prize-giving is on the afternoon of Sunday 3rd February 2019.
Results announced 25th January 2019. Shortlisted poems may be published in a WoLF anthology. The winning poets will be invited to read their poems at Wolverhampton Literature Festival on Sunday 3rd February 2019
