Have I got your attention? Admit it, you might not have been born in the Republic of Ireland, like the vast majority of the population on Planet Internet, but to defy the title of this post, you came here anyway. Good for you!
Here are some details of a poetry-writing-competition open to people born on the island of Ireland, of Irish nationality or long-term resident in Ireland. You may submit a collection of poems - in English - which has not previously been published and may be considered for the The Patrick Kavanagh Poetry Award.
This is the 42nd year of the award. And the prize is €1,000.
The *dead*lion is 26th July, 2013, a Friday. The full list of rulz are here.
