The Golden Pen,
I suppose I will always have a place in mye empty cavity where most people have a heart for the Golden Pen competition, which was the first serious poetry competition that I ever won (sounds like I've won hundreds but the count stands at two)
Run by the hard-working and immensely likable John Corbett, it is very much a one-man show down in Gurteen, co Galway, though the poems are sent off anonymously to be judged.
Now, I know what you're thinking. If that gobshyte can win, then surely I have a chance? And you'd be right. So get you're writing caps on. I'm afraid there's no online entry but all short-listed entrants are invited down to afternoon tea and made extremely welcome.
(Incidentally, I checked with John and postal orders, bank drafts and personal cheques are all acceptable)
