A New Year A New Idea!


Welcome to 2018! 

I would like to compile a list of favourite poems to appear in the next issue of Contour – the Worcester Poet Laureate Digital Magazine. The next issue is the Love Issue and is due out in February. 

You can still submit until the 1st February – check out the full guidelines.

Your Favourite Poems

I know, it is an almost impossible task to choose just one poem but that is all you need to do. 

Comment on this thread Title of Poem and Poet. Or if you prefer you can email worcspl[at]gmail[dot]com with Favourite Poem in the subject line. 


You have until the 5th February 9 PM to get your poem on the list. 


Happy New Year!
