(Markets) Rhyme & Reason poetry & fiction competitions

These competitions are to raise money for the Iain Rennie Hospice at Home. I'm entering the poetry one. The winners will be printed in the Rhyme & Reason diary for 2012 and there are cash prizes.


Entries to be in by 30 June. Anyone joining me?

  • Yes I am entering.
  • It only needs 400 words for the prose.
  • I just had an email to say that my poem that I entered for this competition will be published in the Rhyme and Reason book.
    Anyone else heard? The winner, second and third names are on the site. Anyone we know?

  • Well done, Lou!
  • Just got my diary it's very good and I can recommend it as a Xmas pressie and for a very good cause too. My little poem about my dad's clock is on the October pages, which is nice as his birthday was in October so I'm pleased about that.
    Lou I love your poem!
  • well done kateyanne
  • Well done Kateyanne and Lou. A diary lasts the whole year long. Fantastic.
  • Yours was lovely too katyanne - so much emotion and meaning in just a few words.
  • Congratulations, Kateyanne and Lou. I have a short story in the diary. It's a nice feeling to have your work helping a good cause.

    And Liz - wow, friends with Fay Weldon?
  • Well done Danfango, which story is it?
  • Thanks, Kateyanne. Mine's called "Earn £££'s Doing Nothing", about a guy who sells off his spare time.
  • Well done, katieanne, Lou and Danfango! :)
  • Love that story Danfango. Time is precious. Very apt for the New Year too and the making of new resolutions, I am determined not to waste too much time surfing the net this year when I should be writing!
