|Ó Bhéal Five Words International Poetry Competition|
|Each week on Tuesday at midday (GMT), from the 16th of April 2013, five words are posted on this competition page. Entrants then have one week to compose and submit poems that must include all five words.|
At noon next Tuesday, these words will no longer be eligible, and replaced with five new words. The competition will run for a total of forty weeks, until the last week of January 2014.
A panel of poets from the Ó Bhéal board will adjudicate, and a shortlist of twelve poems including the overall winner will be announced during the first week of March, 2014.
The five words offered each week for 2013-14 have been sourced from the audiences of the first fifty Five Word Challenges (held each Monday evening during 2007-8 at Ó Bhéal – with a few extra words added due to deletion of duplicates). They are then selected from this list randomly.
