My Frosted Fire First Pamphlet Award 2022 Zoom Event

Dear Poet,

Kicking off our packed year of sharing poetry globally is Saturday’s book launch by American poet C.I. Marshall (Consuelo)winner of the Frosted Fire First Pamphlet Award 2022. Consuelo is launching her award-winning debut pamphlet/chapbook — The Locksmith Journeys Into The Underworld. She is supported by a reading from her fellow winner of the Frosted Fire Award 2022, British poet Helena Goddard.

Saturday 28 January at 7 pm London Time – a free event on Zoom – Places can be reserved here.

The event features all three judges of our forthcoming Frosted Fire First Pamphlet Competition 2023 – Consuelo, Helena Goddard, and Marilyn Timms. This competition is open until 3 March, with the prize of award of a publishing contract and 50 free copies.

Our second competition this year offers the New Voices First Pamphlet Award – a publishing contract with 50 free copies for a poet aged 25 or younger. It opens on 2 April.

Our first  Open Submissions window of the year is now accepting poets’ polished, unpublished poems on any subject. Our second submission window, One Year On, starts on 26 February, and looks for poems on first anniversaries like that of the Ukraine War. Poems celebrating weddings, birthdays, and any other special event are also welcome .

We run two online events every month, to record poets reading their published work for publication of the audio in wildfire words. Other forthcoming events areshowcases of competition winners and book launches. Forthcoming events are detailed at our Events page.

Our thanks to the 800 poets from 25 countries who entered our competitions and free submissions windows during 2022.

And a special mention of the generosity of the 600 competitors who supported us through entrance fees, and the 70+ poets who donated alongside their themed submissions, in support of our non-profit service of sharing poets’ work globally. Thank you so much.

All good wishes for your creativity and successful poetry-sharing in 2023,
