Re: Poetry and Short Story Competitions
Just a brief note to let you know that the UK Indie publisher, Bluechrome, is running a poetry competition. First prize is publication of a poetry collection of your own (including 50 complementary copies of the book). All 30 runners-up will be included in an award winner’s anthology and will receive a copy of the anthology.
Bluechrome offer a special deal in this competition, which essentially lets you enter for free. If you submit 5 poems, at a cost of £9, you can select a Bluechrome poetry book for free (I expect you can pay in dollars too, if you want). Full details of the competition here: [www.bluechrome.co.uk] Any queries, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
My recommendation would be ‘Dropping Ecstasy With The Angels’ by Dee Rimbaud, which takes poetry to places you never dreamed it would go; and if you don’t believe me, you can check out some of the poems in the collection here: [homepage.ntlworld.com] />
Bluechrome also publish work by some other very fine poets, including Rupert Loydell, William Oxley, Les Merton, Ronnie Goodyer and Roselle Angwin, so you’re spoiled for choice really.
You might also be interested to know that Bluechrome are also running a fiction competition, with a first prize of £200 and 10 runners-up included in the Bluechrome fiction anthology. Entry for this competition is £5, but if you enter two stories, you can select a Bluechrome novel for free. Again, I would recommend Dee Rimbaud’s novel, ‘Stealing Heaven From The Lips Of God’ (a gritty, modern, love story for the chemical generation). Of course, if gritty modern love stories aren’t your bag, there are plenty of alternatives on offer. You can read the first five chapters of Dee’s novel online at: [www.exposweb.net]

For 45 pounds, I can have a 10 pound book? That doesn't sound free to me, sorry. I'm guessing you will hit me up for shipping as well.
This seems like another one of those Poetry.com scams, no?
I couldn't find any examples of Dee's writing. Nice covers.
