We are very excited to announce the launch of our new Poetry Competition – see the Title above. This Competition is not just limited to local writers, but open to anyone, anywhere. All you have to do is write a poem – it can be about Manning’s Pit, but if you live further afield it could be about a threatened piece of countryside near to where you live.
One of the first people to sign our petition was the well known London poet, Julia Bird. You can read more about Julia here at this link. Julia has in fact visited Manning’s Pit many times, and we are very proud to announce that she is going to judge the competition for us.
More information and details of how to enter can be found at this link on our website. The entry fee is £3 per poem, but for children aged 18 or under entry is free. Entries close on 30th November 2018, and we look forward to receiving plenty of entries!
