Holland Park Press are inviting submissions of political poetry.

In order to enter your poem it must be about any aspect of politics. It can be about international politics or instead be about something political much more closer to home. For example, you can address politics and religion, or the political aspects of war. The poem can be about civil liberties or threats against them, about social injustices, or even about the politics of the use of certain words or language

They accept poems from authors of all nationalities and based anywhere in the world – one poem per entrant.

The author of the winning poem will receive £200.

The winning poem and runners-up will be published in their online magazine.
