AVBOB Poetry Competition Calling for Submissions
10 Aug 2017
Deadline: 30 November 2017
Entries must be aligned with the theme “I wish I’d said” or “Ek wou nog sê”. The poems, however, need not be about the death of a specific person, but can be any poem with an elegiac sense. Poems which celebrate life, or the brevity of human existence, etc., will also do. The guiding principle must be: Will a person experiencing loss be uplifted by the poem, or be able to identify with it?
