Currently in its ninth year, the 2017 Guernsey International Poetry Competition is organised by the Guernsey Literary Festival. It is recognised as a significant and well-respected international poetry competition, attracting over 700 entries per annum from around the world.
The competition is a great opportunity to have your poem read by thousands, on the move in beautiful Guernsey. The winning poets will get the chance to see their poems on the island’s buses as well as at Guernsey airport.
The Winners Reading will be hosted and judged by a renowned poet and will take place during the next Guernsey Literary Festival in May 2017.
