Poets v Writers: The Sumo Wrestle!

The Great British Write Off has just launched their third Poets v Writers head-to-head challenge, The Sumo Wrestle. Find out who won in this fast and furious challenge!

Last week saw the release of two Poets vs Writers Challenges, #GBWO judges Mark Grist and Mixy compete in The Word Association Challenge and the Foam Wrestle Challenge. There are 2 further videos in the pipeline.

Morgan Walton, Director said:

"We drew inspiration from staff suggestions on their literary idols and wondered how would these famous poets and writers compete in the 21st Century, where the Internet, celebrity, adverts and gimmicks seem to tell us actions speak louder than words, and so The Great British Head-to-Head Challenges were born!

The Great British Write Off is an exciting competition for poets and writers, and run by Forward Poetry. One lucky winner will win every penny in the prize fund, which increases every time a new entry is received! The prize fund is currently at £1334.50, and we're delighted to welcome talented writer, poet and performer Penny Pepper to our judging panel this year.

Whether you are new to writing or have a huge portfolio of work, The Great British Write Off is a fun, free opportunity to share your work, get published and even win a prize. Simply pick one original piece you've written - a poem, mini saga or a short story or novel extract and enter online, by email or post by Friday 27th June 2014. Don't worry, you won't need a gimmick for your work, we know great writing doesn't need one - all it needs is an audience, and The Great British Write Off can certainly help with that.

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.
