A result will be reached by late January 2013, with a shortlist published on our website at that time. The winners will be contacted individually and announced publicly during the Cork Spring Literary Festival in February 2013. Please refer to the submission guidelines below for details on how to enter.

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

1. The competition is open to original, unpublished poems in the English language of 40 lines or less. The poem can be on any subject, in any style, by a writer of any nationality, living anywhere in the world. Unfortunately, translated work is not in the scope of this competition.

2. Entries should be typed. The entrant's name and contact details must be on a separate piece of paper in the form of a cover letter. Please also include a note about how your heard about the competition. Manuscripts cannot be returned. Your name should not appear on the same page as the poem to ensure anonymity. No entry form is necessary.

3. There will be an entry fee of €5 per poem or €20 per batch of five. For postal entries you may pay UK£5 or US$8 per poem, or UK£20 or US$32 per batch of five. You may submit as many entries as you wish. Withdrawn poems (for any reason) will not be eligible for refunds. Cheques and money orders must be made payable to THE MUNSTER LITERATURE CENTRE.

Entrants from USA: We DO NOT accept US Postal Orders as they cannot be redeemed outside of the United States. N.b. American entrants: please date cheques by writing out the month as a word. For example: November 4 2010. If any information is crossed out or altered, our bank returns the cheque to us as unusable. In such cases we would have to request a new cheque from the entrant, delaying the processing of their work.

4. Closing date is 15th December 2012. Please note that the post office is very busy this close to Christmas and it is advisable to enter online after December 1st to ensure your poem arrives on time. Entries must be sent to The Gregory O'Donoghue International Poetry Competition, The Munster Literature Centre, Frank O'Connor House, 84 Douglas Street, Cork, Ireland (no postal/zip code).

5. A result will be reached by late January 2013, with a shortlist published on our website at that time. The winners will be announced at the Cork Spring Literary Festival in February 2013. We STRONGLY RECOMMEND signing up for the email newsletter, which will ensure that you will receive the results of the competition by email, whether your entry was a winner at this time or not.

6. If you require acknowledgement of your entry, you must submit a self-addressed stamped postcard. SASEs for international entries should include money for IRISH stamps. Please do not include SASEs with American, British or other stamps foreign to Ireland. Instead you may add one dollar or pound to the total of your entry fee to cover the cost of postage.

7. The Judge's decision is final. Due to the large volume of entries anticipated, the judge will not be able to give feedback on an individual basis. We would kindly request that entrants refrain from emailing to check the status of their poems. Winners will be contacted individually by the end of January 2013; a shortlist will be posted on this website at that time. Submitters may also be notified regarding the shortlist by signing up for the Munster Literature Centre Newsletter.

8. It would greatly assist us if you let us know how you heard of the competition (whether through mailshot, word of mouth, advertisements, newspaper, website, etc.) with your entry.
