The Soldier's Arts Academy (SAA) will host its first International Poetry Competition.
They are looking for original, unpublished poems that are influenced by military life. The theme can be interpreted as loosely as you like as long as there is some link back to the military.
The competition is open to all members of the military community, whether you are a serving soldier, a veteran or a relative of a service person/ex service person. You do not need to be a published poet or have tons of experience, just have a go! This is also an international competition, so they welcome entries from across the globe.Read more
