Magma’s 2021/22 Poetry Competitions
We are excited to announce that Marvin Thompson is the judge
for the Judge’s Prize for poems of 11 to 50 lines and he will be reading all entries – no sifters.
The Editors’ Prize is judged by a panel of Magma Editors and is for poems of up to 10 lines.
The prize money for both competitions is the same,
so double your chances and try your luck at both.
First prize for the Judge’s and Editors’ Prize is £1000, second prize £300 and third prize £150.
The six prize-winning poems will be published in Magma
and there will also be five special mentions for the Judge’s Prize and for the Editors’ Prize.
Winning and commended poets will be invited to read their poems
at a Magma Competition Event in Spring 2022.
The entry fees are £5 for the first poem, £4 for the second
and £3.50 for the third and each subsequent poem.
Magma magazine subscribers benefit from reduced fees: £4 for the first poem,
£3 for the second, and £2.50 for the third and each subsequent poem.
You can subscribe to Magma from £18.50 via our Get Magma page.
The competition closes on 14 January 2022.
