Welcome to this website with details of the second Open Poetry writing competition created as a fund raising event for Cruse Bereavement Care, West Sussex.

It is surprising how many people jot down their thoughts.

Sometimes in a quiet moment.. Usually on their own.

Their poem often lies written but unseen.

This competition gives those poets a chance to let someone else share those thoughts.

The judges will take time to read them, and then have the difficult task of selecting their choices for each one is important to the writer.

Entering this competition will have the added benefit of supporting the dedicated work of  Cruse Bereavement Care volunteers.
