Oldie Poetry Competition

edited July 2012 in Writing
There's a challenging poetry comp in the summer issue of The Oldie - working on my entry now


  • Good luck, Betsie.
  • I love the Oldie. My sister-in-law used to send it out when she'd finished with it and the crossword would keep me going for days!
  • Good luck, Betsie.
  • I'd like a go. What is the theme? Is there a link to their site?
