Would you be interested in taking part in Interflora’s Valentine’s challenge and create romantic verses for Valentine’s Day? Interflora are hosting a competition where writers could have a poem published in Interflora’s Little E-Book of Verse on their website. One participant could also win a new iPad Air 2!
Their ‘Verses for My Valentine’ campaign seeks to encourage people to create thought provoking poetry when writing messages to their loved ones. Rather than writing a clumsy Valentine’s Day message or borrowing cheesy lines from a favourite RomCom, they are challenging people to craft a beautifully thought-through verse that expresses their emotions concisely. The verses can be created in any genre, from a traditional romantic verse to a witty rhyme.
If you would like to enter the Interflora Valentine’s challenge, all you need to do is construct a creative verse in less than 150 words and send it to Laura Sephton whose email address is included at the bottom of this post. Submissions must be emailed before midnight on Tuesday the 27th of January. All entries will be judged by a panel of leading experts, including the Poetry Society and a well-known TV psychologist.
Interflora are also running a separate Twitter competition starting on Friday the 13th of February where they are challenging budding Twitter poets to create a romantic verse in 140 characters.
If you are interested in receiving further information about either of these opportunities, please contact Laura Sephton at Laura.Sephton@interflora.co.uk.
