Magma Poetry Competitions 2017/18

Magma 2017/18 Competition open for entries

Magma’s 2017/18 poetry competitions are now open for your prize-winning long and short poems.

Award-winning poet Mona Arshi is the judge for the Judge’s Prize for poems of 11 to 50 lines and she will be reading all entries – there are no sifters. 
The Editors’ Prize is judged by a panel of five Magma Editors and is for poems of up to 10 lines. The prize money for both competitions is the same, so double your chances and try your luck at both.

First prize for the Judge’s and Editors’ Prize is £1000, second prize £300 and third prize £150. The six prize-winning poems will be published in Magma and there will also be five special mentions for the Judge’s Prize and for the Editors’ Prize. 
Winning and commended poets will be invited to read their poems at a Magma Competition Event in Spring 2018.

The entry fees are £5 for the first poem, £4 for the second and £3.50 for the third and each subsequent poem. Magma magazine subscribers benefit from reduced fees: £4 for the first poem, £3 for the second, and £2.50 for the third and each subsequent poem.

The competition closes on 15 January 2018.
