This week we’ve got Ted Hughes in the red corner and Philip Larkin in the blue. Whose side would you be on? You are invited to write a poem either in free verse mocking rhymed, metrical verse or in conventional verse mocking free verse.
Please email entries, of up to 16 lines, to firstname.lastname@example.org by midday on 9 October and mark them Competition 2819.
Here are the results of this week’s challenge, in which competitors were asked to provide a short story with an ingenious twist at the end.
