Poetry Contest Rules

No entry form is needed. Entry is mostly on-line, or by post if required.

You can enter as many times as you wish. One poem per entry.

The poetry contest is open to poets of any nationality writing in English.

There is no restriction on theme or style.

Poem length is restricted to 200 words.

The winning poems must be available for the anthology and, therefore, must not have been published previously.

Fish holds publishing rights for one year after publication. Copyright remains with the author.

Notification of receipt of entry will normally be by email.

The judges' verdict is final.

No correspondence will be entered into once work has been submitted.

Poems cannot be altered or changed after they have been entered. Do not put name or address with the poem, but on a separate sheet if entering by post, or in the correct place on the online entry system.

Overall winners of the Fish Poetry Prize may enter again, but will not be eligible for the first prize.

A poet who has had two poems in Fish Anthologies may not enter for three years. They may enter other Fish Prizes in that time. (This is designed to give opportunities to a wider circle of emerging poets).

Entry is taken to be acceptance of these rules.
