The Rialto is one of those literary magazines that poets strive to get into, it’s the writer’s equivalent of the Royal Albert Hall. You know you’ve made it, if only for a season, if they accept your work. And they have a pamphlet competition which anyone can enter, all you need is about twenty (perfect) poems. I had some notion of entering this year, but the deadline is looming and I still don’t have enough work that’s good enough. Maybe next year. But you, you may very well have just the right number of finished poems, so why not give it a go, you have nothing to lose but a little bit of time and the entrance fee of £22?

I copied both the header image and the information above straight from their website as a taster, but to find out more here’s the link to the rest: ta da!
