Roses are red, violets are blue… Poems play a special part in wedding celebrations and with Britain’s long list of famous lyrical virtuosi we’re guessing there are more than a couple of you out there writing poems for someone’s forthcoming nuptials.
Marriott Hotels is celebrating romance, love and marriage with a nationwide search for wedding poems in order to create a collection of poetry that reflects modern marriage and weddings. If you’re feeling inspired by love and weddings, here’s your chance to enter a competition that could see you a published poet by the end of it.
The best poems will be selected by the editor of Poetry Review magazine, Fiona Sampson, and poet Matt Harvey, for inclusion in a published book of Marriott Love Poems to be distributed at Marriott’s 54 hotels across the UK. The poets will also be invited, with a guest, to enjoy the ultimate romantic weekend at one of Marriott’s luxurious UK Hotel & Country Clubs.
Entries should be submitted via www.marriottlovepoems.com before 31st March 2011.
