Applications are now open for the Anglica Poetry competition 2019. This competition is designed by Anglice for writing Poetry, they seek to encourage talented students. Also, the winner will get £50 and his poem will publish in the journal. The poem should be metrical and should be no longer than 100 lines, though extracts from longer work are permit. There are no formal or thematic restraints, and so long as it is written in a discernible meter (or several!).  They encourage you to follow your fancy, whether that leads you to the outlandish, the passionate, or even the dull.

Should you need guidance on how to write a metric poem, they suggest, foremost, that you read the guide to prosody in their resources section. For inspiration, they think you can do no better than looking over the poems of John Milton or Shakespeare’s Sonnets.
Anglica offers tuition in English Literature and Language to students of all ages and levels, from pre-GCSE to University and beyond. Further,  they also provide guidance with university applications, and any other English related matter, whether personal or professional. They believe that the best way to excel in any aspect of English is to develop the ability to analyze texts. Accordingly, they teach their students how to recognize and discuss literary devices, linguistic features, and ambiguity in meaning.

Moreover, they also teach their students the forms and rules of poetry, prose, and drama, so that they may see when and why these rules are broken. More importantly, they teach their students how to use these analytical techniques to create thoughtful and compelling arguments in essays and exams
