Chance for local poets

POETS from Sussex have until June 30 to become their local poetry champion. One poet will represent Sussex in an annual best of UK poetry book.

Entry is free and, like all the other winners, the Sussex winner gets a free copy of the book. One overall winner also receives £1,000.

Send three unpublished poems, on any subject (up to 25 lines including blank lines and 160 words each) to United Press, Admail 3735, London EC1B by the closing date of June 30, 2012. Enclose a loose stamp if you want a reply.
