The Eleventh Hour

The Eleventh Hour

Best poet win £25 and a copy of the publication they appear in (as chosen by the editorial team)

This year marks the centennial of the Armistice to end World War I. After a little over four years of fighting, an armistice was signed in a railroad carriage at Compiegne on the eleventh hour, on the eleventh day of the eleventh month, marking the end of the fighting and the Allied forces victory.

In honour of this historic day, we invite you to submit your poems about war and peace. You may wish to write a poetic letter home from the front during the fighting; a poem in thanks to those who sacrificed their lives; or a verse reflecting on the effects and aftermath of the war.

Whatever your poetic approach, we would like to read your thoughts on the Great War.

Closing Date: 30th November 2018

Forward Poetry's ethos has always been to act as a bridge to publication rather than a barrier. This, along with our passion for poetry and creative writing, has seen a humble family business evolve into the biggest publisher of new poetry in the world. We understand that poetry is subjective, that everyone writes in a different style and that what one person can love, another can hate! Our collections showcase a variety of themes, writing styles and poets from all walks of life. They are carefully edited and compiled to celebrate and complement the craft that all of our contributors enjoy poetry.
