Writing Armistice - British Army’s 2018 Poetry Competition
Deadline: Mon 15 Jan 2018
2018 is the year of national commemoration of the Armistice in World War One. We invite poets to respond to these events, or any subject matter inspired by Armistice.

Writing Armistice is the British Army’s 2018 poetry competition, sponsored by the Museum of Military Medicine.

You can find inspiration from national and local museums nationwide, including The Museum of Military Medicine and you are encouraged to explore the resources site to start you off. If you are a teacher planning a ‘Writing Armistice’ website, you may find the Poetry Workshop LPGIS form useful for some ideas or resources.

Prizes are to be awarded in several categories for the best single poem exploring Armistice in any way (eg, thematically, linguistically, formally). The Judge is Roy McFarlane Open Category – over 18s from anywhere in UK or overseas. Youth Category –- 18 and under (on date of deadline) from anywhere in UK or overseas.

Entry is free and you can make as many entries as you like.

For full details see the Museum of Military Medicine website.

Closing Date: 15 January 2018
