    Helena Nelson’s latest blog post was very informative. Thanks for posting the link I reside in the USA, and begin to wonder if it is a liability in regard to UK competitions & submissions. Most require UK residence (which is understandable). Any advice?

    • I think all you can do is read the small print of the rules. If UK residence is required, then obviously it’s a waste of time entering.
      If not, then it’s a gamble (but then all poetry competitions are gambles). Sometimes it’s probably worth Googling the judges, to see if they’re the kind of people who might appreciate your kind of poetry.
