Hi all! This thing is one of those I spent my first two hours of computer-use for. It’s, obviously, an international poetry competition based in Italy.
I’m a poet myself so I am kinda interested. Are you? Here’s the link, my friends:http://www.castellodiduinopoesia.it/en/bandi/
The competition is very inviting since the cash prize *hee hee* is pretty big, and it’s in Euros. Aside from that, the project, I believe, also aims to help humanitarian cause(s) which makes it very endearing as well. The first, second, and third cash prize is worth 500euros, and you’re supposed to donate the 200 to a certain humanitarian cause of your choice. And one of the best things about this is the deadline! The sending of entries will end by January 7th of next year which means I can still have the whole November for my novel-writing, then spend most of my December brainstorming for this project! YAY! 😀
So if you think you have what it takes to write a decent novel that is noteworthy enough to be sent to Italy, then go ahead and join! I’d be supporting you all the way! 🙂
P.S. This post is also a shout-out to my new subscriber, Black Swan Poetry. Check out her awesome poems! 😀
