The Pagan Poetry Pages is running its Yule Poetry Competition for 2009.
All you have to do is write a poem after viewing pictures on the website (one of which is shown on the right) and then email your poem to firstname.lastname@example.org with a few details about yourself and an indication of which picture you are writing about.
The first prize is a fountain pen and a £20 Amazon gift voucher. The second and third prizes are £10 gift Amazon vouchers.
The competition is open to everyone and the closing date for entries is December 24. The winners will be announced in January 2010 on Pagan Poetry Pages.
Pagan Poetry Pages was founded by three Irish women - Dawn, Socarie and Beirn - as an online space devoted to pagan poetry. The website says: "The definition of 'pagan poetry' is necessarily very wide; it can be defined as the expression of man's condition in relation to his physical environment or simply a poem written by a pagan."
