Share your poetry with a large, appreciative & captive audience!

As the Shetland Library's Reader-in-Residence, I'll be selecting six new poems to grace the doors of public toilets in Shetland in a new round of 'Bards in the Bog'. Poems can be on any subject, but must be written by the entrant, unpublished and less than 12 lines so that they can be enlarged

to large print. Send/drop in entries to the Shetland Library or email them to, including contact details so we can let you know if your poem's been chosen.

Deadline for submissions 21st December. Poems will appear in public toilets from January 2012.
